Vortex Manipulator

A vortex manipulator was a form of basic time travel used by the Time Agency of the 51st century. It had additional capabilities as well. Time Agents were each given a vortex manipulator. Vortex manipulators used and issued by the Time Agency were housed in leather wrist-straps with a covering flap, enabling the device to be worn conveniently by the Time Agent without drawing attention to the device itself.
Although it was generally used by the Agency, the Family of Blood stole one to follow the Tenth Doctor around the universe.

Hypercube

Hypercubes were a communication technology used by the Time Lords which resembled cubes; they were used by thinking or speaking to them and then sent through time and space to Gallifrey or to someone they trusted enough to rescue them. They could be used by humans as well as Time Lords.

“It’s a very special sort of box. It now contains all the information about what’s been going on here, and an appeal for help.” — Second Doctor, The War Games

“Time Lord emergency messaging system. In an emergency, we’d wrap up our thoughts in psychic containers and send them through time and space.” — Eleventh Doctor, The Doctor’s Wife

Psychic paper was a blank, white card that had special properties. When shown to a person, it could usually induce them to see whatever the user wished them to see printed on it. However, it proved useless on geniuses such as William Shakespeare. It was most commonly seen being used by the Doctor in his later incarnations.
Psychic paper could receive messages from beings of sufficient psychic ability, but in the hands of untrained users, the paper was prone to displaying facts they subconsciously wanted the reader to be aware of. This could be embarrassing.
When the intended thought was too unbelievable, the psychic paper would only display squiggly lines.

Forehead Info Ports


On Satellite 5, a space station that broadcasts news across the “Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire”, people use ports in their foreheads to interface with computers and facilitate information transfer.
Adam attempts to take advantage of this and send information to himself in the past, but is easily thwarted.


(It’s not very practical, really.)

The TARDIS


A TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space)is the vehicle used by Time Lords to travel in both time and space. TARDISes are dimensionally transcendental- the inside is bigger than the outside- and are grown, not made, which can take many centuries. A TARDIS can blend into its surroundings using a Chameleon Circuit- although The Doctor’s is broken, forcing the TARDIS to remain disguised as a 1960’s British Police Box.

Also… Sometimes The TARDIS is a woman.

Sarah Jane’s Sonic Lipstick

The sonic lipstick was a device similar to the sonic screwdriver owned by the Doctor, and regularly employed by Sarah Jane Smith. It resembled a genuine 21st century lipstick closely enough not to seem suspicious.

Sonic Screwdriver

“a versatile tool and defensive “weapon” used by the Doctor. He used it primarily as a non-offensive tool to assist him during his adventures. During the course of his travels, most versions had either been replaced or destroyed, with all being ineffective against wood - something he found embarrassing.”
