Ename the Time-Frame reconstructive viewing. by 


When I was in Israel in the early nineties I went on a visit to an ancient Roman site which had been devastated 2000 years before by a violent earthquake.
The site, fully revealed by archaeologists was, none-the-less a higgledy piggledy morass of toppled columns and stone blocks.

I had an intriguing idea whilst looking at the piles of stones which were hard to make sense of, “wouldn’t it be fantastic if there was a screen standing here in front of me now or better still a window which when I look through it at the scene would reconstruct the whole place in front of my eyes exactly as it had been on its original foundations”.
I took this idea to Ename when shortly after I went to work for them.
Subsequently together with the technical assistance of IBM we created the world’s first out-doors synchronous reconstructive viewing system,l I called the prototype, ‘The Timeframe’. (subsequently the Ename people renamed it, ‘The Timescope"
