YouTuber Wears Cameras For Whole Year to Create Virtual Reality Time Machine

YouTuber’s passion project offers a glimpse into the future.

For the past two years, YouTuber Lucas Rizzotto has been working on a time machine. The project was a success and his journey is chronicled in a viral online video, filmed entirely with an iPhone.

In the YouTube description, Rizzotto states that the video was a quarantine project. Even though he started work on his machine long before the virus, a video was never planned. It was only through quarantine boredom that the video project came to be. 

A disclaimer states, “some aspects of this video are exaggerated for comedic/dramatic effect, but the project is 100% real. I really like mixing fiction and non-fiction together (it creates this surreal, but documentary feel) and this is something I actively want to explore in this series.”

He created a ‘personal’ time machine using the magic of Virtual Reality (VR). By wearing a camera, recording his life “day in, day out” for 365 days, Rizzotto created a digital time machine simulation that lets him go back to any day he wants.

Rizzotto used camera glasses which recorded the first-person videos at 60 frames per second. He also programmed a virtual control panel with a digital calendar and lever. Users input the day they wish to ‘relive,’ and pull the lever to view the entire first-person footage from that date.

Rizzotto hopes to make his YouTube channel, Lucas Builds the Future, a series in which each episode he builds “something crazy using futuristic technology.” Suggestions are welcome.
