When Alexander arrives on the date of May 24th, 2030, he is seen watching the "Future is now" on a large screen. When he unravels the rope that lets the "step-down" stairs down, a man in a white shirt and blue jeans can be seen slightly behind the time machine for a brief second, then he vanishes back under the machine when Alexander is walking toward the screen.
