Get ready for some hoverboards, and self-drying/self fitting jackets because apparently an Iranian Scientist has developed a friggin' time machine!
The inventor of the "Aryayek Time Traveling Machine" was registered with the state-run center for strategic inventions by Ali Razeghi.
From The Telegraph:
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".
As the managing director of Iran's Centre for Strategic Inventions, Razeghi is a serial inventor with 179 other inventions listed under his own name. "I have been working on this project for the last 10 years," he said.
"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."
Razeghi says Iran's government can predict the possibility of a military confrontation with a foreign country, and forecast the fluctuation in the value of foreign currencies and oil prices by using his new invention.Friends and family of of Razeghi are criticizing him for trying to play God with this technology, although he says that it does not go against religious values at all.
Razeghi also says that Americans are also trying to create the same technology by spending millions of dollars on it, while he has been able to create it at a fraction of the cost.
What do you think about this? Is it a load of malarkey? If it's legit, do you think world governments will use it for good or evil? Let us know what you think in the comments.
