The device can predict up to eight years into the future "in a print out after taking readings from the touch of a user," says Ali Razeghi, the inventor and managing director of Iran's Centre for Strategic Inventions.
Complex algorithms can predict so far out with "98 percent accuracy." Razeghi notes he has been working on the project for the last 10 years and has 179 registered inventions.
"My invention easily fits into the size of a personal computer case and can predict details of the next 5-8 years of the life of its users. It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you," claims the scientist.
"Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it," he added. "As such we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage."
Of course, Razeghi took a parting shot at the U.S. and China: "The Americans are trying to make this invention by spending millions of dollars on it where I have already achieved it by a fraction of the cost. The reason that we are not launching our prototype at this stage is that the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight."
