A wormhole, also known as an Einstein–Rosen bridge, is a hypothetical topological feature of spacetime that would fundamentally be a “shortcut” through spacetime.
As Wikipedia points out, a wormhole is much like a tunnel with two ends each in separate points in spacetime.
Various representations of wormholes have been depicted on sci-fi shows like Sliders and Stargate, although most of us are (presumably) still wondering what it is really like to travel at hypersonic speeds through a wormhole.
WAM – which was recently featured on BoingBoing – boasts 120 LEDs, an infinity mirror and some old-school NASA-inspired hardware.
The Wormhole Actualization Machine is currently on display at Northern-Southern in Austin.
