Teleportation - its a funny old game eh? all that disappearing and reappearing.. and for what to save time having to walk? pff sounds like to much effort to me, I would rather just teleport.
"It is a long way from Star Trek, but teleportation - the disembodiment of an object in one location and its reconstruction in another - has been successfully carried out in a physics lab in Australia. Scientists at the Australian National University (ANU) made a beam of light disappear in one place and reappear in another a short distance away."
