We'd all love to be able to be transported like Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise  to any location you wish.
Can you imagine jumping in the teleporter at your workplace, and sending yourself to, let's say Hawaii for lunch?
60 minutes in a beautiful place, and then just pop back in the teleporter to head back to work.
Or would it take the fun out of traveling?
Well, I'd like to at least experience it and decide for my self, and I imagine you would too.

Recently, someone built and demonstrated a teleporter at a Mall in England, and, well, see for yourself how it all played out.
