Iranian Scientist Claims to Have Invented Time Machine

Sounds like a magic 8 ball

|

Iran could be home to the world's first time machine, if claims from an Iranian scientist are to be believed (color us skeptical). According to The Telegraph, a scientist based in Tehran, Iran has registered with the Center for Strategic Inventions a device called "The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine," which can reportedly allow individuals to peer into the future – up to 8 years into the future, that is.

The time machine isn't of the police box or compact car variety, however, with the 27-year-old inventor Ali Razeghi stating that it can fit in a briefcase. Likewise, it doesn't work in the conventional ways a time machine is imagined to work. Rather than whisking users away to the past or future, this device is said to make its predictions based on the touch of a user.

  1. Do you know how to tell if an Iranian is lying?

  2. “Rather than whisking users away to the past or future, this device is said to make its predictions based on the touch of a user.”

    Sounds like one of those coin-operated love meter machines. I wanted to try one when I was little, but mom said there were too many germs 🙁
