....quantum teleportation is not teleportation....it is transfer of information...

Why is this on the timeline as a way to teleport objects (like grains of sand in the 2080s)?????

Lol, I think that's one of the older articles. But I think we can at least teleport something as small as that, but more likely in 2300 or so.

If you teleported something, would the distance you could teleport it be restricted by your capabilities or could you send it anywhere in the universe? Or do we not really know?

Yeah it's old. And it should be removed. Why is your estimate 2300? There is no known way to teleport objects now, so how can we start making estimates?

Hell, we know how a warp drive will work, but we don't know how teleportation will work.

How can we know something about a theoretical technology that

A: hasn't been invented yet

and

B: we have no way of knowing how it will work if or when it is invented?

Transversable gravity can work with the Gauss-Bonnet-Einstein gravity (an extension of General Relativity) without the need for negative-energy matter, a non-existent material.

 

As quoted from a study's summarization:

 

The third kind of solution are wormholes. Although vacuum solutions, they have the appearance of mass in the asymptotic regions. It is striking that in this theory, exotic matter is not needed in order for wormholes to exist- they can exist even with no matter

 

The study: http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0701152

The full study (if you read these kinds of things, I can't understand them. I haven't even been past junior highschool): http://arxiv.org/pdf...c/0701152v3.pdf

We kind of know. It's basically dissolving a materiel into particles, transport it quantumly, and assembling it together exactly as it was former. But of course it's inefficient and not a good theory, but at least that's how it works. By the time we reach the Singularity, we will have advance a lot, so that's why I put my bet in around 2300, but that's still conservative in my sense.

1: Wormhole transportation is not teleportation. It is wormhole transportation. Just as car travel is not teleportation.

2: The "dissolving matter into particles and transporting them" is the basis for the Star Trek transporter, not reality. In fact, the Star Trek transporter actually kills the person who steps into it (it dissolves them into particles, that's called killing them). It simply creates a copy on the other end. This is shown in the TNG episode "Second Chances" where Riker is cloned by the transporter because it didn't destroy his original body!

Let's go to reality. Oh hey, if this was the method that they used in reality, it would kill you too! In Michio Kaku's TV series Sci-Fi Science, he tries to figure out how a teleporter would work. He admits that quantum entanglement wouldn't work. He then goes on to the whole "transferring particles" idea, but he actually then admits that all it would do is clone you!

Remove teleportation from the timeline.

Wormhole transportation is the (semi) closest thing to teleportation. 

 

The definition of teleportation according to wikipedia is:

 

"Teleportation, or Teletransportation, is the theoretical transfer of matter or energy from one point to another without traversing the physical space between them. "

In retrospect, that was quite a poor prediction. I have removed it.

A body replicator can easily substitute for teleportation of matter.

 

Just instantly destroy the body and have the replicator remake the body exactly at the same time but at a far different location.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

Problem is, how will the consciousness transfer over? That's the whole point lol.

Yeah, but you destroy the body. So you die.

From HowStuffWorks:

It stands to reason, then, that every successful bio-digital teleportation would be an act of murder and creation. Each use would see the digitalization of your body's every detail, the creation of a genetic clone complete with all the travelers' memories, emotions, hopes and dreams. The original copy would have to die; that is, unless we're cool with the notion of duplicating ourselves every time we need to travel cross-country and committing infanticide each time little Jimmy heads to school.


And yes, wormhole transportation is probably the closest thing we'll ever get to teleportation.

FutureTimeline is a collaborative effort. :) The predictions aren't just mine – they're a result of people's feedback and discussions here. :)

 

Some of the predictions were made a while back (2008-2010), before I had a proper knowledge of certain tech/innovations. I've learned a lot since then, and continue to learn with each passing year.

There are still a few cases of teleporting matter instead of information: the "Teleportation of complex organic molecules" entry in the 2038 section and a reference to "macro-scale teleportation" under Femtotechnology in the 2100-2149 section.
