Teleporting -Beaming to the place you want to be!

I just came across this article on teleportation and fondly recalled Star Trek.

How I wish it is really possible to just beam into the place you want to be.

Imagine -- No traffic... no pollution... no body aching because of long travel and you don't really have to wake up that early to go to your office that's so far from your home!

Imagine some more--- you could be chatting with somebody on the internet or talking over the phone and in one instant you'll be meeting face to face with the person...

Okay some more--- You could easily visit family and friends from outside the country or tour the world in less than 80 days without having a jet lag and without the need to get a visa...

Ah great... imagine further--- you are looking forward to beam to somebody you have been dying to meet and have prepared for the occasion when suddenly something goes wrong and you arrived in your destinaton minus your eye, ear and nose...yikes...

... or a cockroach (yuk) also got into the machine and you are beamed and merged together into your destination... double yikes!

Don't wanna be part cockroach!!!

I've often wondered about teleportation but maybe it is better if I am already gone by the time they finally have a teleporting machine!

Hi Elizabeth,

There was this movie in the 80's, i think it was entitled "FLY". And it has almost the exact plot that you described in your cockroach story. He turned into a mutant-man-fly!

Sarap nga siguro mag-teleport. It will solve a lot of problems in the Philippines. Like, what if we teleport all our politicians to Mars, wouldn't that be nice?

In the meantime, let's do some teleporting via Google Earth! It's amazing, you should try it.

Yup I saw that 1986 movie and also saw the Vincent Price version on TV when I was still young, siguro 1950s pa yung movie pero i saw it 70s na so ang tagal na ng concept ng teleporting but very remote pa rin yung possibility. Pag isipin mo talagang exciting yung teleporting, ang daming present problems na ma-solve including yung suggestion mo na iteleport yung politicians natin sa mars...at sana pag na teleport natin sila don may kasamang ipis sa machine para mas maganda ang mutation nila pag dating don!

April, i mean ladycharlie, sad to say pero may ipis pa rin sa pilipinas... if they ever make a teleporting machine and forget to clean up, it is possible for one to get there (matalino ipis dito!)...

and ka edong... i am not fond of ipis.. mas yucky pa yon kaysa sa fly! and if we are going to teleport our politicians to mars, i'll hire somebody to get all the ipis he could collect and place it in the machine with the politicians...hay naku, i could just imagine how the politicians will react when they get together in the machine (it already makes me smile!) and when they are finally merged in mars...hmmm i don't think they will really know the difference ;-)

this is funny, 'lizbeth! i like the idea of beaming unexpectedly where my friends are and take their wits out of them! LOL what a funny imagination!

ah, the joys and freakiness of science. ;) pero nakakaintriga pa rin ang ganitong teknolohiya. too bad chances are i'd be six feet under the ground the time they teleport the first animal.

The concept of teleporting is exciting but you are right, i think we will already be gone before they could make one, in the meantime we just beam ourselves to others in cyberspace through our blogs :-)
