That way I could get up at like 9.30 to get dressed and then just teleport to Birmingham for roller derby at 10, rather than have to get up at 7 in order to get a train at 8.20 to get to Birmingham for 9 in order to get a bus to the venue for 10.

it makes no sense!


Yes, but would you really want to use a teleport operated by British public transport? Your kidneys would arrive an hour after the rest of you.


except you'd have a personal one!


Unfortunately teleportation will never work like that, the subject needs a "gate" of sorts, with a transporter and a destination.

So if it ever becomes a reality it'll be like an airport, except you just walk through the departure gate and appear at the arrival gate, after paying many thousands for your instant travel :P

Security? Very high, what's to stop someone just tossing a grenade through the teleport gate?

I like the idea of combining that with pranks.

Know the "teleport number/address" of someone you don't like? Send them a skunk :lol:

Nah, I say we go Star Trek on that shit, and have Transportation Chiefs who monitor what is being beamed, that way we can disarm the weapons in transit.

In theory, if we could move and reassemble molecules, we could render explosive matter inert?

I'm more excited about putting the entire postal and logistical shipping industry out of business :D

Gate system is flawed. If you don't move throught it instantaneously, you'll be cut in half in a bloody mess. Even if that doesn't happen, your nerves would be firing like mad making the experience horiffically painful.

This sounds like it's going to make hovercar technology reduntant, so I don't approve. Although pretty much everything seems to make hovercar technology reduntant.

I was supposed to be in central an hour ago for my friends houseparty. But I feel so tired and really not up for it. It sucks, cos i was looking forward to it as well. I just know if I go i'll be miserable and tired.
