Time Machines

io9 has produced a list of Ten Coolest Time Machines.

You can probably guess most of them.  I’ve always been a fan of the WABAC Machine and the Primer setup was interesting.

I would add:

  • The vortex in The Philadelphia Experiment – accidental time travel, naval military experiment; a match made in heaven.
  • The mailbox in The Lake House – old school lettering is old school time travel.  Sad Keanu wishes people would hold tight to old school time traveling style.
  • The journals in The Butterfly Effect – user has some measure of control.  Do you remember enough to be your own time travel machine?
  • And, of course, the map to holes in spacetime from Time Bandits – I don’t think this one needs any explanation.
