The Time Machine

Visible crew/equipment: When Alexander hears the child scream a foreign language and hears others, he looks down. As the others are climbing up the ropes and ladders, a safety strap "KEEPER" is seen holding one of the platforms up.

Visible crew/equipment: In the widescreen version, when Alexander stops his time machine in the year 2030, he lowers the steps to get off. As he's doing this you can see the reflection of a few crew members in the pressure gauge located by the steps. (00:28:00 - 00:28:55)

Other mistake: With how fast Alexander is traveling through time, when the pendant falls out of the time machine, he shouldn't be able to see it fall or hear it hitting the ground.

Question: How is the hologram artificial intelligence system still operational and has power after 800,000 years?

Answer: We don't know what kind of power supply the AI system is running upon, but it's possible it's a system that works on some unlimited energy source that doesn't need fuel or uses very little energy.

Answer: It's a plot hole. Just as, in the original 1960 George Pal movie, the Eloi are still human and speaking 20th Century English. After 802,000 years, all artifacts and traces of our modern civilization will be long, long, long vanished (excepted perhaps for a handful of fossilized bones). Additionally, after such a long time, the human species will probably be long extinct.
