# What are time circuits?

## What are time circuits?

At their heart, the ‘Time Circuits’ are a clock – three separate displays, showing the time machine’s present time, destination time, and last departed time. The displays are controlled by a keypad, where you can input new destination times.

How fast should Doc Brown’s DeLorean time travel?

88 miles per hour
The car requires 1.21 gigawatts of power and needs to travel 88 miles per hour (142 km/h) to initiate time travel.

### Where is the DeLorean time machine now?

The DeLorean DMC-12 time machine, made famous by the 1985 blockbuster, Back to the Future went on public display at the Petersen Automotive Museum on April 22, 2016. The stainless steel time machine will be on permanent loan to the Petersen courtesy of Universal Studios Hollywood.

What was the original time machine in Back to the Future?

DeLorean DMC-12 time machine
The 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 time machine from “Back the Future” is the 29th car to join the National Historic Vehicle Register.

## How is a capacitor used in a timing circuit?

Capacitors are components that are used to store an electrical charge and are used in timer circuits. A capacitor may be used with a resistor to produce a timer. When power is turned off the capacitor discharges its electrical charge slowly.

Do capacitors delay current?

If we connect the capacitor directly to the battery, there is no restriction on the amount of current that flows through the capacitor (other than the batteries own maximum current capacity). So a lot of current flows, the capacitor charges really quick, and the delay becomes very small.

### What is delay in circuit?

In electronics, digital circuits and digital electronics, the propagation delay, or gate delay, is the length of time which starts when the input to a logic gate becomes stable and valid to change, to the time that the output of that logic gate is stable and valid to change.

How are the time circuits in the DeLorean time machine?

The time circuits of the DeLorean time machine were an integral part to its functionality. They were coupled with an input device and a display. The display was divided into three sections: DESTINATION TIME, PRESENT TIME, and LAST TIME DEPARTED, all annotated with Dymo labels.

## How does time circuits work in Back to the Future?

Imagine yourself in the Delorean time machine from the 1985 Back to the Future movie with this Time Circuits clock screensaver. It features the dashboard that controls the time traveling through three dates: the destination date, the current date, and the date last departed from. The “Present Time” aligns with the current time on your computer.

How does the DeLorean travel back in time?

(In practice, these events could only be viewed by driving to the location of the event with the help of gas stations and freight ships, and then traveling back in time, since the DeLorean did not yet travel in space at this point in its construction.)

### How did Doc set up the time circuit?

Doc set a day, month, year and time option into the time circuits. The setup was apparently user-friendly, considering that Marty and Biff Tannen were both able to insert destination times quickly and easily.
