Having lately boasted of such accomplishments as building their own diesel locomotive and sending a monkey into space (or did they?), now Iran can claim to be the home of the world’s first time machine. The Daily Telegraph reports:
Ali Razeghi, a Tehran scientist has registered “The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine” with the state-run Centre for Strategic Inventions.
The device can predict the future in a print out after taking readings from the touch of a user, he told the Fars state newsagency.
Razaeghi, 27, said the device worked by a set of complex algorithims to “predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual, with 98 percent accuracy”.
Not only is it accurate, but Razaeghi claims the time machine is also quite compact and user-friendly:
“My invention easily fits into the size of a personal computer case and can predict details of the next 5-8 years of the life of its users. It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you.”
