Well, It's A Start

Heck, I'm sure we'll have a fully-functional invisibility cloak before we know it. Once we've gotten that out of the way, it's on to teleportation.

My dear man, you are obviously not high in the ranks of geekdom. You are behind the times.

"Until recently, scientists had been able to transport only light or single atoms over short distances (millimeters). However, it has been reported in October, 2006 that Professor Eugene Polzik and his team at the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University in Denmark have made a breakthrough in the field.[3] Their experiment involved the transportation of information from one macroscopic atomic object containing thousands of billions of atoms to another, located half a meter away. The technique involved the use of quantum entanglement, quantum measurement and quantum feedback. Little information is available, however, which throws suspicion over what would be a great accomplishment."

Yeah, I'm well aware of the advances in that area, which is why I mentioned it as being in the realm of the possible. I must say, I've never had my geekdom insulted before. :)
