Retro Tech: Teleportation

For decades people have dreamed of a technology that would allow them to instantly be somewhere else. I’m taking a deep dive into teleportation tech and the next best thing - virtual reality with Jake Baldino and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

  • if vr becomes so good and so realistic, could we be experiencing the birth of an animus from assassin's creed? and how do we define the difference between time travel and teleportation with vr then

  • As far as teleporting on the planet at least the most likely future I see for that technology is a combination of virtual reality and holograms quite possibly tactile holograms that you can actually interact with and touch and feel. Now that might have some problems further down the line when we start wanting to use that technology to communicate to other planets you know maybe to interplanetary outposts. Hell at that point speed of light starts to become a problem and the latency would be far too high I think to give it the same feeling as it would on Earth where we're never far enough apart for latency to be an issue at this point. What blows my mind is we actually have the technology to do this now with the exception of the holograms since they're still pretty limited but it could be done. even the tactile holograms could theoretically be done in the next couple decades because we already have simple tactile sonic holograms. I've seen a small holographic elephant made from sound that you can feel walk around in the palm of your hand and that was developed several years ago already so imagine how far that's come along by now. I would be surprised if there is not a lab somewhere on the planet right now where they are developing or have likely already fully developed holographic virtual teleportation for communication purposes, somewhere like DARPA or some other super secret lab like that or maybe CERN, or even some students at MIT right now are working on it. I hope so because I really want to see this happen, I've always been a super future tech nerd of epic proportions, hell I was the only kid around whose hero, one of my to 3 favs anyway was and still is Ray Kurzweil. Clearly I would love to see this in my lifetime because we already live in the future but I can't wait to see truly futureist affirming tech like simulated teleportation.

  • The virutalboy is something I want to try

  • But could we teleport non-sentient items, like a paper clip? He makes it sound like it’s possible to transport molecules so long as they are able to hold the information of its assembly... with the exception of things like memories and brain synapses. But paper clips and objects don’t have those things. Could we teleport items, but not humans?

  • I like the philosophical question of people appreciating being there physically even though you could have the same experience in VR. But for me teleportation is not just for sightseeing, but being able to travel quickly. If teleportation was slower than taking the train/plane/car... whats the point of it? Imagine having breakfast with your dad (being able to hug him) in the UK at 9am (9am BST = 6pm ACT) and putting your kids to sleep, giving them a kiss on the forehead the same day in Australia! Thats the magic of teleportation.

  • I think another interesting way to simulate the feeling of teleportation similar to VR, would be to create a way for a person to be in one place with a VR set up or mesh exo-suit on, and be able to manipulate the environment of in another location. Possibly "puppeteering" a robot that stands in your place of some sort that moves as you move, or moves as you direct with immersive tech. Def. not used in public but at home if youre at work, or at work if you want to work literally work from home lol just an interesting idea..

  • I'm glad to hear an actual scientist say the same thing I've always thought about teleportation.. Sure, you can break me down and rebuild me somewhere else... but is it really me? And to take it even further, if the existence of a "spirit" is real... can we even then call a complete copy with complete memories us still? Would our existence blip out as a clone existence continues on as if nothing ended? Your experience as you could end as your shell continues on living life as if nothing happened.

  • I believe the most realistic path to teleportation is by using two technologies that are currently in its baby shoes: cognitive reading/manipulation (stuff like Neuralink) and cloning or robotics. Why go through all the effort of physically moving a body? In the end, it's just about where your mind is located. When we succeed in reading the brain and uploading information to the brain, we can have either a human clone of ourselves or a robotic replacement wherever we want to teleport to, and upload our mind to that location.

  • Really interesting video! Though I think the Virtual Reality connection is very tenuous and received way too much screen time here. I wasn't sure how the double slit experiment connected to teleportation, but you did a good job of wrapping it in without spending too much time on that tangent. Would have liked to have seen less VR (in that vein) and more discussion of quantum teleportation.

Planet earth can be difficult enough to live on at times with people not caring about others or how they effect others like a ripple effect. This is crestons wife. People are always looking for a way to escape their problems just to take them wherever they go even if people could live on another planet they would find a way to take their problems with them and ruin it look at Californians with living relocating to texas.

  • I don't think rematerializing is a good idea. In theory, when you rematerialize, the machine is copying every single molecule in your body and rebuilding it somewhere else, but the problem with this is that it's essentially making a copy of you and deleting your old self. Like Neil deGrasse Tyson said, that physical clone of you is not YOU until it has the memories of your brain, but I disagree. When you take a computer file and copy and paste it, the second file is the EXACT same file information-wise (it has all the memories, etc.), but it's not the EXACT same file because it's just a clone. It would technically do the same things and serve the same purpose, but the original file was deleted, and this would mean that if it happened to us, we would just be cloning ourselves, building the clone, then killing ourselves. We would be dead, but no one else would notice because the clone would completely replace us in every way. I wouldn't want to replace myself and kill myself for the sole purpose of transportation.

  • It would take 10 trillion gigawatt-hours of power to teleport a human. "Teleporting one human being would therefore require hogging the entire UK power supply for more than a million years and take some 4.8 million million years to transfer - or about 350,000 times longer than the universe has existed. It would literally be quicker to walk."
