“By the year 2020 the technology will exist that will allow for the "faxing" (teleportation- sending/receiving) of actual inanimate objects, such as text books, clothing, jewelery and the like.”

Rob Schnitzer


Schnitzer's Argument

There is a clear need for such a technology to exist. All too often objects are left in one place while they are needed by the owner at another location. While overnight delivery has been accepted by many to minimize the momentary loss there is still the need for immediate receipt of the missing object.

Technology is in place for the faxing of words and pictures, so what not for the "faxing" of actual objects.
