    It works in the movies, Star Trek, The Fly etc...
    But is instantaneous teleportation of human beings possible?
    No problemo! According to a magazine article, "If you worked out the location of each atom in your body, and recorded all that information on CD-Roms which were than stored in a cube, that cube would need to have sides almost 1000km long", says Professor Samuel Braunstein.
    "Than it would take 100 million centuries to transmit that information."
    [that quick?]
    However computing power doubles every 18 months.
    "If this continues to hold true, in a century we might be in a position where we can start thinking about teleporting a human being." says the Prof.
    Its already been done with light, using 'Quantum teleportation', light was teleported over a distance of one meter!.
    Wahay! erm wouldn't it have been easier to just beam some light over one meter? [ssshhh!]
    But wait just think of the possibilities, scrambling Eric Scott's atoms with say Estella Warren's atoms mmmmm Estella's atoms... and than beaming them into the next room and than looking in horror at the results, hmmmm... [​IMG]
    Beam me up Scotty!

    Ah, but who figured we could get all the info we do on a DVD. Maybe we could use some lossy compression - that's it! Lose pounds now with our new teleporter diet.

    But there's always the off-chance you'll come out with too much EE or in extreme cases, panned & scanned. [​IMG]

    Nah, the only thing I want scrambled is my eggs, I love the smell of scrambled eggs in the morning, isn't that what Robert Duvall said in Apocalypse Whenever? I'm sure it was.

    I remember watching a program about this subject as well as other sci-fi inventions. Most of the "experts" agreed that it was very unlikely. Their rationale centered on the fact that the re-sequencing would be damn near impossible. To many pieces and parts moving simultaneously...
    Hmmm, are there any HTF fizz-ah-cysts out there???

    I'll try it. Just as long as I do not end up with the Chroma Bug or the Flicker Bug. I don't want a doctor to suggest I need a Firmware up grade to cure me. My wife likes my firmware just the way it is [​IMG]

    Ron,
    I think, perhaps, in a 100 million centuries, they might get those bugs worked out. However, by then, you'll have to upgrade wife 1.0 to the 2.0 version. [​IMG]

    Just when you thought our buddy from across The Pond couldn't come up with a more offbeat topic. ... [​IMG]

    What about the Simpsons episode where Homer bought a
    teleporter for 35 cents and wanted to use it to not have to walk so far to the toilet.
