Ohio man creates a functioning prototype of a time traveling machine

CLEVELAND - Move over Dr. Who and other time travelers. There's some time traveling competition right here on Earth.
An Ohio man claims he’s created a working prototype for a functioning time machine that was inspired by a movie. Marshall Barnes, says "Terminator 2" is what got him hooked on time travel.
“I had problems conceptually with it – going back in time, what would that mean?” said Barnes.
To find out what it would mean, the research engineer started working on he calls his “Space Time Dilator Transmitter System.” The concept is kind of how the blades of an electric fan grab space and contract it.All Barnes says he needs, is more power to possibly open a time portal.
But don't expect it to look like "Back to the Future." Barnes says, the movie is a fantasy. If you go back in time and marry your mother it would not change anything, because paradoxes are for story telling and paradoxes are not a part of science.
