Q: Do you think this technology will ever be available?
A: Unlikely. I remember when I was a young child; friends and I would argue which would come first, the flying car from The Jetsons, or the talking watch from Dick Tracy. We’d end up agreeing that flying cars are much more likely. Now we have Android Wear and similar products. So I don’t rule anything out completely.

The reference to the teleported laser is true and space-time has much more to reveal yet.
