 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 news agency.

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.

"Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilise it," he said. "As such we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage."

So he must have invented this at least 5 to 8 years ago to know it actually works.

 

And, say for the sake of argument, someone uses it and sees nothing.  So, they change their life style and exercise, eat right, etc.  If that person is alive in  8 years, the machine failed as it would have predicted the user's actions.  But, the real head scratcher is would the person have changed their lifestyle if the machine didn't reveal nothing?

You don't need a time machine for that.

So it's called a time machine, but it is not actually a time machine? He might want to think of another name.
 

"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."

Certainly not to be taken literally - as shown by the text that comes after the quoted material - but the idea is rather nice . . .
