A Brief History of Time Machines
When this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour...
About this creation
The Dawn of Man
Our early ancestors had a frequent habit of eating overripe, fermented fruit, passing out, and waking up hours later, so, in a way, they did invent a time machine. The tradition continues today in bars across the globe.

The Ottoman Empire

The Age of Piracy

The Turn of the Twentieth Century
The awe of time travel probably isn't worth the extreme dizziness.

The Present Day
A blinding flash, and the time machine is gone.


BONUS MATERIAL

The Ottoman Empire setup:

The Ottoman Empire machine:
An accurate illustration of how much I struggled with the Ottoman machine. I'm still not completely satisfied.
Yes, I was planning on incorporating an elephant.

The Piracy machine:
Wheeeeee!


The Piracy set:
The Piracy setup:
The Twentieth Century machine:
The Present Day machine:

I am so done with this project.


AMUSING NOTE FROM THE WORKBENCH: It was originally going to be "A Brief History of Jetpacks," but as soon as I tried making a monkey jetpack out of bananas, the whole thing went to hell. There's only so much you can do with jetpacks, anyway.

ANOTHER AMUSING NOTE: I misspelled "century" very badly as I was writing all that. I switched the vowels. I got a good laugh out of it.

Quoting Skior Llessah all these are really good, i like the turn of the century one best. only, modern time machines are blue police boxes that are bigger on the inside. ;)
Excellent point; how could I forget that? That'll be in the sequel.

its me again, these are awsome time machines, i like the 20th century time machine and the pirate time machine (it looks like the H.G. Wells time machine)

Some DANG good work here! Gotta' love the pirate set, and machine for that matter! I also really like the cover picture for this. Too bad you couldn't get the elephant in somewhere...A job well done, anyway!

I really love all the details! Especially the pirate background. And all the lighting just adds to the effect.

I know you may think it took me a few days to comment on this but I'm actually commenting from three days before you even posted it and my flux capacitor didn't quite have the 1.21 gigawatts to make the jump accurately. Yeah, I don't believe it either... And not to be repetative but my fave was the pirate set as well BTW. Nice work all round as usual. ~ Chris.

Nicely done, as usual, Alex! Love the pirates backhground, and those cast shadows in particular. I see you covered the basics for time travel, however I was surprised not to find Captain Kirk with a Tommy Gun in there somewhere!

I hope tomorrow's time machines are bettermade and don't fall apart when you reach your destination. Great MOC.

Our modern time machines are so cold, heartless, and sterile. I miss the lovingly handcrafted, finely polished wood models of yesteryear. And not that nasty fake wood paneling they slapped on them in the 70's, either.
