How to Build a Time Machine (Vortex Distortion Space and Time Dilating Device)

Featured
Well lets put it this way, ive always had this thing about traveling through time, and having a time machine. So i set about making one, i decided that instead of being a vessel to travel in, i would rather have something portable.

Many hours thinking i came to a conclusion. If im going to be traveling through time, the actual time machine would have to be timeless (not out of place in the past, present day, or the future)

So eventually i decided to make something that resembled a time piece, mixed with an old compass, and various other inspirations, some from various steam punk items.

However i did not want to make something that was steam punk, as i personally find alot of steam punk to be a bit over comic like, and a bit to fantastical.

So, heres how i did it.

Materials consist of -

Alot of scrap and junk
corrugated cardboard
Mount card
PVA glue
Super glue
Black paint
Spray paint
Leather
Wood
Some thicker mount card
A few Special oddments - for me this was the lenses.

Step 1: Building a base

Ok, now the base of my time machine was modeled around two ring type peices of metal, and as with the rest of the -ible, you kinda have to work things out for yourself too!
Firstly, i set about cutting out some ring shaped pieces of card, As you can see from the pics below.

Obviously, you could just create this thing from scratch using cardboard. But i think a good scavinge can always turn a good result - The metal sections in the first picture are off an old repromaster! bout 20,000 pounds worth of kit in there day ( we recently scraped ours)

I basically used these as a shape to trace onto the card.

Cut as many as you like to give it a good depth that your happy with.

I recommend corrugated card as it is easily to get a thick depth, its easy to cut, and great for gluing in later steps.

This thing is not working and will not ....ever work bez if u actually want to make it then u have to create a time loop (LIGHT) ,and that thing can be only made in a black hole bez it can bend the light in curvature and if u can create a continous time loop by bending the light .......i gess thats enough,u might hav understood.

This is one of my favorite things to do on the weekends. I went back and stopped the Holocaust (no one will know that I stopped it until 2024, for undisclosed reasons), as well as proving that the Buddha was in fact a short, fat, raving lunatic with Down syndrome who stole all his teachings from other people. I'm now off to see who the first human was. It's looking pretty bad for the Abrahamic view at the moment; in all my time traveling, I haven't met one Biblical prophet yet.

Could you send me back in time so I can save my son? He was killed 12/4/13 by his friend and if I can prevent it, he will be here with his family.
You haven't met the Biblical prophet because I have been following you on all your travels and making sure you don't screw up things more than you already have. Now, stop playing around and don't go back and change anything anymore. Thank you.
Hello....I am really in need of a time machine...its not to change the past.bc I believe the experience that I had from the past is so well beautiful to move forward...of all the disasters ,failures ,sorrows and tragedy I had experienced has to come to an end ...I want to create a new tomorrow for me and my family....plz help...plz..
Hi....plz help me to build a real time machine...
Im from India
I have shared this information on how to time travel with everyone here on a different time line but it always turned out a disaster. ..6 times I have done so... and 6 times I have had to travel back in time and correct it... no anymore. We are far from being responsible human beings...
Sorry...no more time machine building... but don't worry, I have gone far into the future where machines are not necessary for such travels, I was planing on sharing this information with everyone. And I did, but most people used it for selfish purposes so I had to go back a second time and change it. .. this time around I am not making the same mistake. ..

Guys, seriously, think do u think cardboard is magical? and by the way how to time travel is basically something else. Okay, the secret is simply, molecules travel in 4 dimensions which is in time but for scientists time does not exist so lets use 4th dimension. So controlling molecules is possible but I'm not telling u how cause thats my secret. So controlling them is possible. Now u can control where they all move to. Now we can also make them move all at the same speed which means we can send any type of molecules to the past and future and back to the present. Humans and everything around us is made of molecules which means we can send anyone and anything to the past and future. How to control the molecules is my secret, sorry guys. Hope it gives u guys ideas and good luck. if u find any more info about this plz tell me on this chat. Thanks very much.

So could you please tell us how to make a time machine?

I have gone back in time and deleted the information needed to build a time machine. .. I am sorry, I am not being selfish. .. but we can not have the whole world going back in time just because
I have a question after i will travel where will i be i mean the place not the time

that time machine does not work but you can slow the time naturally if you can go in space.In a blackhole the 1 day is larger than earth's 1 year.But nobody can come out if he enter a blackhole because after the supernova explosion the gravity has increased in the star so much so dont think about time travelling

You muther effing son of a testical. You think you're so superior because you have mastered the majestic properties of time travel. I shall have you know, I too have the capabilities of time traveling and I'll have you know that I will be traveling back in time 10 days and beat the living crimany out of yah. And after I beaten you senselessly, leaving you in the puddle of your own excrement, I'm going to share, with the ENTIRE instructables How To Build A Time Machine blog page of the majestical beauty of time travel. I bid ye small testicled boy farewell

I have made this contraption, indeed it is functioning correctly. Yet is extremely time consuming. I will see you guys hundreds of years from now.

does it work

eli.kenney.94 months ago

does it work I really want to know

does it work

Don't need a machine to do it at all. Just happens some times to people who are obsessed with time travel. The mind is a very strange thing indeed... But you never know if this guys stuff really works.

You forgot to put in the crystal..
I found a particularly small flux capacitor at Dick Smiths (It's like the Australian equivalent of Radioshack) that fit perfectly. Funny thing though - when I had finished using my time machine, I went back in time to stop myself from buying it, and the shop assistant said I had already bought it earlier that day. He must have been experiencing 'future echoes' (As per Einsteins theory of relativity).
i dont wanna be mean or anything.... how does it work exactly. like is this bogus or are you serious about making this work?? because i dont wanna put time into it if its not really possible. you have no idea how desperate i am about going back in time. as ridiculous as that soundsss.

I help but wonder if you’re really wishing to get ya head
out of the clouds by getting back to your own planet; rather than passing back
in time. I mean come on, do you really for one moment think that cardboard is magical?????

I actually tried it, I only was able to go back a few hours.. try adding crystals..
you think it could go back like... a couple of days?? what kinda crystals??
