Real world tech from Star Trek

Posted this article on real-world tech inspired by Star Trek tech, with an exclusive footnote by Doug Drexler.

Take a look and spread the word. Thanks to Doug for his input!

Re: Real world tech from Star Trek

It's safe. I checked it with a virtualbox I keep for just such a situation. It's just a tiny url leading to the blog in his signature.

Here's the full url to the article:

on the article itself, yeah, pretty standard observations that have been made plenty of times.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...

Re: Real world tech from Star Trek

I always considered teleporting to be killing a person and then re-assembling them somewhere else, which is why I wouldn't use it if I had the choice.

Also, I think this thread should be in Trek Tech instead of the General board.
