London: An Iranian scientist has claimed that he has successfully invented a machine that allows users to fast forward up to eight years into the future.
Ali Razeghi, a Tehran scientist has registered "The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine" with the state-run Centre for Strategic Inventions.
According to the state-run media, the device can predict the future in a print out after taking readings from the touch of a user, the Telegraph reports.
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".
He added that the Iranian government can predict the possibility of a military confrontation with a foreign country.
They can forecast the fluctuation in the value of foreign currencies and oil prices by using his new invention, he added.
According to the paper, Razeghi said his latest project has been criticised by friends and relatives for "trying to play God" with ordinary lives and history.
He stressed that this project is not against our religious values at all.
