Teleportation goes long distance

Physicists have carried out successful teleportation with particles of light over a distance of 600m across the River Danube in Austria.
Long distance teleportation is crucial if dreams of superfast quantum computing are to be realised.

When physicists say "teleportation", they are describing the transfer of key properties from one particle to another without a physical link.

The team has published its findings in the academic journal Nature.

That's pretty interesting.

This 'teleportaion of light' wouldn't neccissarily mean the eventual teleportation of physical matter.

But is this the first step in the wireless transfer of energy and electricity?

OK, a question to you science guys out there.... Why would you teleport light? Is this faster then the speed of light? If not (and I know it shouldn't be able to happen), thenwhy teleport light anyway if it naturally travels faster on it's own? Quantum computing? Anyone want to explain that one to me?

Wireless electricity has been around for over a hundred years, you've certainly heard of radio waves? That is a small electrical signal.

Read up on Nikola Tesla, he invented it (radio, wireless electricity, AC electric, and tons of other things).

Yeah, but wireless electricity is useless if it not in high amount for use with such objects such as TV, laptop music players etc. It would be a huge jump in technology if batteries were made redundant

What about if you used it to wirelessly transmit electricity not just to laptops, but to homes? Wouldn't that save a lot of copper and power outages? The research was never completed because you could hardly charge people for something that would be easy to harness once transmitted.
