Iranian Scientist Builds Machine That Can Predict the Future
In April 2013, Iranian Scientist, Ali Razeghi, claimed to have built a device that can predict the future with 98% accuracy. The machine, which is about the size of a laptop and took ten years to develop, uses complex algorithms to arrive at predictions. It works by producing a print-out outlining any individual’s life between five and eight years in advance after taking readings from the touch of a user.
Razeghi has been very protective of his invention and has not revealed any concrete details about it out of fear of the machine getting into the wrong hands. He has, however, registered his invention, which has been named The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine, with the state-run Centre for Strategic Inventions.
Razeghi said that his latest project has been criticised by friends and relatives for "trying to play God" with ordinary lives. However, Razeghi insists that "this project is not against our religious values at all."
He believes the device could be used by his government to predict military conflicts, as well as fluctuations in the value of foreign currencies and oil. 'As such, we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage.' said Razeghi.
According to the inventor, who at 27 years old has already invented 179 other inventions in his young life, the USA has been trying to make the same device by spending millions of dollars but Razeghi claims that he has been able to produce it using just a fraction of that cost.
No further announcements have been made regarding progress and when he plans to release the first prototype, but it will be extremely interesting if and when he does.
