I am looking to DIY build a simple yet effective real life time machine and I'm looking for recommendations and ideas to make it even more effective. Sounds fun, right?

Ok, here's the basics. Based on Brian Cox's explanation that you can see here unfortunately we can't travel back in time. However, we can do (and always do!) travel forward. As you guessed that is the norm here on earth. However we can do travel forward quicker than all other beings on our planet resulting slower 'aging' as we say. All we need to do to achieve that is to travel in space at such a speed just as we can do.

My time machine is designed to do that by putting not ourselves but other living organisms (like apples or oranges) on a test to see if they 'age' slower than their siblings not moving faster than the earth rotation they're moving together with.

For this experiment I'd like to build a giant rotating wheel - a flywheel to be specific - that has a really high RPM with a large outer circle where I can design little boxes to keep subjects to move along with and spin it for as long as needed for the reference subjects - like the siblings of the same apples fitted inside the the boxes around the fast moving wheel - to show visible signs of aging. Then I hope to stop the wheel and see what happened with the fruits inside.

It is all just theory that I need to see if it even works at the moment, but this is what DIY is good for isn't it?

Here's a basic starting point for the wheel from Magnet Tricks YouTube Channel to make it energy efficient and easy to build. I just want to scale it up by it's width for a few meters first to see if there's any visible difference.

Haven't started yet, in fact, this post is my first somewhat physical step towards the completion. If you heard about any similar devices being tested or used, please bring some info here, because I'm really curious about it.

Thanks for reading. Any ideas are welcome!

Our first visual 3D plan has been developed by the very talented Janos Csaszar.

You can find more info about the artist with examples here: https://jonathanemperor.artstation.com/

This is our "first draft" example. More tweaks and calculations needed, but this can give an idea about what we're thinking to build.

After some research I've realised that this project is impossible to present, simply because we can not make it spin fast enough to measure results. We need to get as close as light speed as possible to even see a second of changes in a year and that will make this experiment ineffective on our subjects.
Sorry for wasting time and space here. I think this post can be entirely deleted or at least the thread can be closed.
