A scientist from Tehran, Ali Razeghi, and the state-run center for Strategic Inventions have claimed to have invented “the Aryayek Time Traveling Machine” which they believe can predict the future, UK based news agency The Telegraph reported on Wednesday.

Razeghi told Fars state news agency that from the touch of a user the “time machine” is able to predict the future and print out the readings. The device functions according to a complex series of algorithms which the scientist claims can “predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual, with 98 percent accuracy.” 

The 27 year old scientist is also the managing director of Iran’s Center for Strategic Inventions and has created 179 other inventions which have been listen under his name, he said “I have been working on this project for the last 10 years.”

“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,” he added.

According to the young scientist with the help of this time machine, Iran’s government will be able to predict the possibility of a military confrontation with a foreign country as well as guess fluctuations in the value of both foreign currencies and oil prices.

Razeghi said that “naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it, as such we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage.”

The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine has been criticized by Razeghi’s friends and relatives who have said that he is “trying to play God” with both ordinary lives and history, reported The Telegraph.

However, Razeghi said that “this project is not against out religious values at all. The Americans are trying to make this invention by spending millions of dollars on it where I have already achieved it by a fraction of the cost.”

“The reason that we are not launching our prototype at this stage is that the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight,” he added.
