Time Machine

This hand-crafted replica is based on the vehicle from the 1960 movie version of The Time Machine, a book orginally published by H.G. Wells in 1895 in which a scientist's invention allows him to travel forward and backward in time. Not precisely a robot or an astronaut, the Time Machine nonetheless incorporates many of the same fantasy themes.
