if this thing becomes portable, then you are one step closer to a tri-corder.
add another piece of technology to the list of star trek visions from gene roddenberry.

e=mc2. when we can safely convert matter into energy and that energy back to the original matter, then you have a transporter that can send you
distances at the speed of light.
to convert matter into energy, you have to accelerate matter to the speed of light squared. an extremely fast speed.
to say that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light would make this equation wrong. because then energy can't exist or vice versa.
einstein put down a challenge. we know his equation is right. the challenge is to over come what he said was impossible.
