It's an appliance which looks just like a microwave Brian. You put it in
there and set your date. If it's still there then you know it didn't run
into big trouble with the Worlocks!
It's a scientific fact that florescent bulbs when placed close exactly
reproduce the effect of time!
Did you now Yvette Mimieux (Weena) is also an anthropologist?  
Keeps that day job!

                     I seemed to see a ghostly,
                     indistinct figure sitting in a
                     whirling mass of black and
                     brass for a moment—a figure
                     so transparent that the bench
                     behind with its sheets of
                     drawings was absolutely
                     distinct; but this phantasm
                     vanished as I rubbed my eyes.
                     The Time Machine had
                     gone.—Chap. XII, ¶19
