I was thinking along the same lines regarding the transporter.

Wouldn't it be great to transport food, agricultural machinery, etc (that's a BIG etc btw ;) to people in impoverished countries?

The mind boggles at how much the world would change. No more need for road/rail/air transport of goods/people, cutting down pollution and transport times significantly. It would also make space exploration a lot simpler: even if the transporter has a limited range (which I'm guessing it does), a series of them on spacecraft along the path to the destination would allow us to beam large groups of people onto other planets.

I can't vouch for the validity of this, but this is a fun read if your appetite was piqued by PopeRazto's post:


You should find the Charlie Manson easter egg there, and a lot of the other twisted stuff mentioned in PopeRazto's post.

I'd recommend taking it all with a grain of salt, and reading this stuff at home, not at work :)
