Steam time straightener designed by Bernard Maets. This is one of his earliest time altering machines recovered to date.

Type and Function:

Mr. Maets discovered that time is not naturally flat, but varys in its flow.  His theories were lost until recently.  Modern peoples refer to what Maets had discovered as biorythms. Bernard felt this variation interferred with his productive and creative sides and sought to produce a device that would flatten or straighten the time and remove the variations.  How effective the unit was is unknown. Unfortunately, this unit is incomplete and only functions as a clock.

Recovery Site:

In 1995 the unit was uncovered in South Africa in the capital by aides to Nelson Mandela, during a routine inventory.  It is believed to have come by way of the Congo having been left in Africa during a visit Maets made to Stanley.  In 2009, the device was transferred to the Maets Foundation.

Principal Investigator:

This object has been recovered, studied and restored by Ed Kidera.  More about Mr. Kidera
