What's the name of the movie?
I'm guessing it's Project Almanac. I watched it recently and enjoyed it. A lot of people tend to criticize it for the bad science it contains but I
actually think they did a half-decent job for a time travel movie. The bit about using the parallel processing power of an xbox graphics card to
calculate the wormhole structure was smart. Also, having to power the worm hole generator with a lot of energy, such as the electric car battery they
used, is also realistic because it takes a huge amount of energy to warp space time. Even the way the objects in the room lift up and start rotating
could be explained by miniature space time whirlpools or eddy currents in a larger rotating wormhole. Of course there were a lot of nonsensical things
in the movie but there were some clever things in their too.
EDIT: now that I think about it, I think the xbox was also used to calculated the destination of the worm hole so they wouldn't end up stuck inside a
wall. In their first real time travel experiment where they send the toy car back in time it gets stuck in a wall, so they must have realized that was
a problem and figured it out.
