    It's Teleportation -- For Real!

    Well, we can all get rid of our automobiles now.

    "A teleportation machine would be like a fax machine, except that it would work on three-dimensional objects as well as documents. It would produce an exact copy rather than an approximate facsimile, and it would destroy the original in the process of scanning it," wrote quantum teleportation pioneer Charles Bennett on an IBM Research website.

    The only part that gets you is the "it would destroy the original inthe process of scanning it", but then maybe the "copy" would be better then the original. :
