I'd thought it was impossible for humans to create. [...] It is indeed amazing...but did you know that travelling to the past or future, or controlling time is a grave crime?

This Time Machine is a vehicle capable of transcending time invented by the Bulma of the future.


It was invented by Bulma in the future, and Trunks rode it to the past to give Gokū the special medicine for his contagious disease.



By inputting the year number into the cockpit's keyboard, the vehicle is capable of moving to the intended year. It is also equipped with the ability to become a capsule. With the resources present in the future, it takes quite awhile — 8 months in Trunks' first travel — for the Time Machine's energy to refill, so it cannot be used frequently. However, in the present, Bulma has been shown capable of reproducing the fuel needed for the Time Machine within a day. Due to insufficient equipment, only one time machine was produced.[1][2] It is releaved that time machine is connected to a parallel world, not the future whenever the initial settings are still in place. If the settings change and if the connection can't be strong enough, it would no longer be able to go to the same future again.[3]
