I should add that you can clue something as a hoax by several ways:
First: a prof always gives their university (or professional) email and you can always verify employment.
Second: a prof's website looks like this:
Third... they don't house their research on University Personal Homepages servers.
Fourth... those "devices" are actually... well, they're stupid. I love the "four chips and a bunch of these little red LEDs makes a time
machine" concept. This is elementary circuitboard work (I didn't look up the chip parts to see what they actually were) and breadboard work.
It's like someone putting together bicycle parts to make a bicycle and telling you it's HG Wells' Time Machine.
The final clue should be that the person has NO idea what the "Unified Field Theory" is.
Here's a Plain English version:
They niether write nor reason like a scientist. I'd say this is a freshman (at best) who hasn't taken many science courses, who is enjoying playing
a prank on the world.
Their ignorance is pretty evident.
