 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.

Here are some of the coolest, weirdest, most inventive, and sometimes highly unreliable devices used to wander through time.
