It seems that the teleportation of science-fiction stories has gotten one step closer to becoming reality. A multinational group of researchers in Australia have demonstrated the ability to share information via teleportation using quantum physics. Teleportation is defined as the production, disembodiment, and successful reconstruction of a signal, which in this case was a high frequency sound to three participants. The research team used a laser to teleport a signal to a network of scientists that could only be reassembled when a majority of the recipients were present. Any less and the signal cannot be reconstituted. The research has piqued the interest of many large corporations eager to develop unbreakable codes, superfast computers, and communications that would be inaccessible to cybercriminals.
