A Tehran scientist, Ali Razeghi, has claimed that he invented a time machine that predicts the future, the Telegraph has reported.
Razeghi reportedly registered the "Aryayek Time Traveling Machine" with the state-run Centre for Strategic Inventions, where he serves as the director.
The time machine can predict five to eight years into the future of any individual with 98 percent accuracy, the 27-year-old scientist said.
"I have been working on this project for the last 10 years," Razeghi 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."
Iran's government could 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 the device, according to Razeghi.
"Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it," he said. "As such we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage."
