Teleportation device
« on: November 26, 2015, 10:05:14 PM »
My 11 year old son says he wants to build a teleporter when he grows up so "Mom can get home from work faster".   Who am I to tell an 11 year old, who has very little understanding of physics that it is not possible, Who knows in 50 years time he just may work it out. 

I  am looking for ideas to get him started on his journey and teach him a little science along the way.   My initial thought was to start him off with a 3D scanner (Using a Kinect and RGBDemo app - not very good http://rgbdemo.org/ ) and a 3D printer to 1) Scan the object. 2) Transmit the scanned object 3) print the object.   4) Destroy original object.   5) Reverse the process. 

Yeah I know it is not teleportation but I figured it would start to help him think about the process of taking something and breaking it down to it's basic components, transmitting those components to another location and then recreating that item. 

Are there any other thoughts around how I could start him off on his journey of building a teleporter.

OK I did a google and found this.  Looks like someone had the same idea as a starting point http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/22/researchers-create-a-teleportation-machine/

haha got a kick out that thanx.

it is noble just the same when future designers of tommorrow are optimistic with their dreams, such as young nink version 2.
ya, who knows what might be possible in 50 years, possibly even sooner.
i suspect at some point he will invent a opportunity for her to work from home if teleportation just remains in research and development.
though we do already have the star trek communicator, primative EM drive systems. -_-
