Boffins from Japan and Australia have made a huge scientific breakthrough by successfully teleporting packets of light from one area to another.
The mind-bending project, led by Noriyuki Lee at the University of Tokyo, could lead to the creation of super-powerful quantum computers and revolutionise the telecommunications industry. The team managed to teleport wave packets of light by destroying them in one place and re-creating them in another. It's an incredible process that means transmitting large volumes of complex quantum information could be quicker than is currently possible. The quantum physics term behind this experiment is 'entanglement'. It means that two particles can be bonded in such a way that even when separated by large distances, they are still linked. So what happens to one affects the other. The team linked packets of light to half a pair of entangled particles. They destroyed one of the particles and the light itself, leaving just one remaining particle. This particle still contained detailed information about the light which they could then use to rebuild the original particle.


Woah.

Saw this today, this is incredible. I dunno if they can successfully transport information though, wouldn't that violate causality?

Pretty damn awesome

Casuality schamsuality. I say bring it on, laws of physics.

Yay! I won't ever have to use public transport ever again!

I'm selling all my car investments.

But seriously, like the light, our cells have DNA which is basically a blueprint for how our body was created, but I'd hate to have myself destroyed and re-created, so I think I'll hold on hope till transportation really exists.

Because the speed of light is too damn slow

It is.

Compared to instantaneous transportation anyway.

OT: Cool shit.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

Reminds me of Mass Effect. The so-called message system thing is said to work about exactly the same as the above mentioned method.

Even if this is revolutionary, it won't see the light of day in telecommunications for at least a decade. The market is locked down by corporations whose best interest is to continue milking their long-term investments (cable/satellite data transfer systems).

Well, it's a little more complicated than that. I feel pretty confident saying the amount of light particles they transported is only an extremely small fraction of the amount of cells a human has in their body, not to mention the amounts of different cells and their different functions.

I honestly don't understand most of the actual mechanics of how they did it... but it sounds awesome so therefore it must be.

I know, but I'm confident it'll be possible in the future using this breakthrough's methods with advanced tech. It'll never get out, though, like cloning.

I thought they managed to teleport light years ago

This isn't really a viable technology if it only works at a quantum level. I mean sure, shit's awesome, but to be realistic, I doubt it'll be applicable in any real world situation.

Yes, and it doesn't cuddle afterwards.

This.

Quantum computers will be the next scientific revolution. It opens up worlds of possibilities.

the idea of quantum computers has been around for about a decade, and this discovery, while it might be a first step in that direction, has yet to be successfully applied into any kind of real-life situation.

Just because something is possible doesnt mean its appliable.

If you go into Teleporter A and your information is sent to Teleporter B where an EXACT copy is made, and then your original copy in Teleporter A is destroyed, is the copy in Teleporter B really you?

No. But I don't think scientists care if they have a replica of the same information.

Oh no. This wasnt supposed to happen until 2040. theres less time than I thought. Sell everything you have people stock up on weapons. The machines...

That's just an illusion. The original me would've been destroyed, and I would be a living experiment. But that shouldn't matter with information, like I said, scientists won't care if they have a replica of the same information.
