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.

yall some dumbasses believing him :)

Thats rude because I believe that you can do anything with the help of god. And if you are in need to go back in time you should pray and he may help you
I have tried everything to build a time machine but it has worked. I really do hope this works because a few months ago my grandpa passed away. I truly thought my life would just be terrible until my last breath. I have learned to cope with it but I still am tore up inside. We went to Chicago very often and we made plans to go see the Picasso but our plans where ruined and I thought his feelings were hurt and still to this day I feel bad. If I could I would go back in time and ask Pablo Picasso what the Picasso was because I know my grandpa would have loved to know and I would have too. R.I.P from your best friend I love you

Can you help me I need to restart back from January 1 2015

V.D.S.T.D.D is what you mean by time machine

You cant make a time machine you have to travel the speed of light to time travel and even if you tried to travel the speed of light you would be dead, but if you had some type of suit that lets you still being alive that would be amazing and also you might not even make it to go that fast and if you do you might screw up time and the world not even exist and just saying you would get around $999,999,999,999, or even more. And that is all i know for now hope someone becomes famous and gives me one because i gave them this brilliant idea.

does it really work??????????????????????????

ShreyasK31 month ago

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
