This machine is lethal, but that's not its purpose. It stands in a windowless child's room and looks like an electric chair, complete with ankle cuffs, straps, and power cables. There's a metal ring at head height.
It's really a prototype time machine built by Sic Mundus. The chair stands in the bunker near the Winden cave tunnel. In 1986, Noah and Helge Doppler carry out experiments on live subjects. Their guinea pigs? Winden's missing children.
The machine hasn't been perfected. The children are sent through time – Mads Nielsen to 2019, Erik Obendorf and Yasin Friese to 1953 – but die in the process. The energy in the metal ring scorches their eyes.
