Teleportation Machine That Works Through Destructive Scanning And 3D Printing

Posted on Updated on

Scotty - The Teleportation MachineThe Hasso Plattner Institute has created an actual teleportation machine. The concept of teleportation suggests the movement of an object from one location to another location, perhaps through the disassembly and reassembly of atoms or other similarly impossible means.

The project, called Scotty, is a proof-of-concept and artistic statement, rather than a flesh and blood teleporter. Scotty teleports items by scanning them layer by layer and then grinding them away. The scan is then sent securely to another 3D printer which recreates the object in plastic. There would be only one copy of the object as the data transferred between machines is quickly destroyed once the object is printed.
