 Traveling through time is all the rage right now. A trio of new time-travel series hit this TV season — NBC’s Timeless, which just had its season 1 finale, as well as recent premieres Making History on Fox and Time After Time on ABC — and a big part of the fun in watching is seeing how each series sends its characters hurtling through the years.

For that, Hollywood has turned to a quirky variety of devices and charmed objects to facilitate time travel on television and in the movies — from straightforward DIY time machines to phone booths, DeLoreans, and even a hot tub. Here are some of the coolest, weirdest, most inventive, and sometimes highly unreliable devices used to wander through time.
