Professor McGinty's Time Machine

During my travels, many people have asked me about my time machine.
The machine is, of course, too big to bring along with me; it pretty much fills my workshop from side to side and from the floor to the ceiling!
I thought it would be a good idea to let some of you into some of the technology behind the machine.
If you have seen me then you have already seen some of the components of the time machine as they are also essential parts to the ‘Amazing Let’s Look At Pictures Of The Past Picture Box Thing’ that I carry around with me.
This unique viewer can show pictures of the places I visit as this is the next best thing to actually being there.
The ‘ALLAPOTPPBT’, (for short), uses the same technology of my full sized time machine but provides a view of the past which is much safer than transporting your atoms to your chosen part of history.
Recent government guidelines have ruled that children’s atoms being separated and re-assembled in another place is too dangerous and the paperwork and risk assessment forms would be a complete nightmare!


Here is the window to the past I bring with me

You can see some of the attached time machine components that I will discuss in more detail now



This keyboard enables me to input our geographical destination

Whether it’s World War Two or Ancient Egypt, this is the starting point to getting the machine going

Destination Input Keyboard


This is where you choose the date you ’d like to get to
The full sized time machine has other settings for exact dates so you can pick a particular date from history
This is useful if you want to go and see the moon landing or Shakespeare performing one of his plays for the first time

Date Destination Selector


You may or not know but the time machine is powered by three sources; electricity, water and plasma
You probably know about the first two but all you need to know about plasma is that it tastes a bit like strawberries
The ammeter tells us how much power is flowing through the machine at any point




This valve lets water in and out of the machine

The machine generates a large amount of heat and water is the best way to cool things down a bit

You really don’t want to overheat the machine

Water Valve


This dial monitors the moisture in the surrounding air

This needs to be kept constant or damp can affect the display

You don’t want to arrive in the past too hot and sweaty




This is attached to the date destination selector

It diverts power from the plasma circuits to other components when they need it

Capillary Flange Circuit


This is the control that alters plasma and electricity levels within the machine

Careful adjustment is required

One false move and who knows where you’ll end up?!

Frequency Modulator



This doesn’t really do much but it flashes in an attractive way and looks impressive

Plasma Disk Array


Once all of your selections have been made via the above controls a flick of the switch will set the machine in motion

Remember to monitor pressure, water, plasma and electricity levels during the machine start up
Main Switchoid



If you get peckish during your travels you will need this
Remember that dinosaur eggs take a little longer to cook than chicken eggs

Egg Timer
