ArcadianRefugee: Having your atoms scrambled in one location and reassembled elsewherewould be nice, but that's not how transporters work.
TheHighlandHowler: me neither, but don't waste your time.http://www.cio.com/slideshow/detail/101238/10-Star-Trek-Technologies -T hat-are-Almost-Here#slide12
Dadoo: we'd assume one computer cycle to teleport each elementary particle in a human body
Tommy Moo: No way is teleporting more than a quantum particle "almost here."
ShawnDoc: WhoGAS: I didn't take it that way myself. I assumed "almost here" on a more geological time scale where 150 years is pretty much no time at all.What do you do for a living, that when someone says something is "almost here", you think of a amount of time greater than your lifespan?
ShawnDoc: WhoGAS: Is that sarcasm or are you really saying that? If you are serious, I'm curious as to what you are referring as dumb, specifically.Nothing on that list is "almost here". For the most part they're comparing Star Trek technologies to things that only superficially resemble them. Yes, projecting a video on a human shaped piece of glass means that full range 3D holograms that can manipulate matter like in Star Trek are just around the corner! Using Quantum Entanglement to transmit a tiny amount of data across 3' of open space means teleporting a human being miles away and through through obstructions is just around the corner.Stupid.
Tommy Moo: No way is teleporting more than a quantum particle "almost here." And even if it was, I'd never do it. No one stops to think that the people in Star Trek die every time they use a teleporter, and are replaced with an exact copy of themselves at the other end.
fluffy2097: DamnYankees: Link isn't working for me.That's Ok. Warp drives, Holodecks, transporters and sentient androids are not almost here anyway./where the hell are my green slave girls damnit?
mark12A: I can't believe they didn't mention IPads. Frikin' IPad is a direct ripoff of the PADD devices they use in StarFleet.Yet another reason I HATE Abrams Trek. They don't even TRY to extrapolate any technology. Just a goddam, empty headed shoot 'em up movie....
