Facebook Wants To Transcend Boundaries via A ‘Teleporter’

Out of several futuristic contraptions, there are a few gadgets that every person on this planet must have dreamt of. Time machine and the teleporter come under those fantasies. Well, the future of the time machine looks bleak as of now, but the talks of building a teleporter are running wildfire.

The Facebook’s chief technical officer, Mike Schroepfer, revealed his company’s plans to “effectively build a transporter by 2025”. He said at a press event prior to addressing the Dublin Web Summit on Tuesday
Facebook wants to build a device that allows you to be anywhere you want, with anyone, regardless of geographic boundaries
Since the technology for building a real teleporter is not yet designed, so for now, Facebook is relying to trick you into a teleportation experience throughvirtual reality. The technology as a concept is fast gaining popularity and the big tech companies like Google and Microsoft are also exploring into the multitudes of the VR prospects.
Meanwhile, the social media giant is busy trying to simulate the extraordinary effects into its Oculus Rift that is set to arrive next year with the Touch controllers and ability to mimic your real world expressions. The Touch feature allows you to visualize your hands during the simulation thus adding reality to the experience. The Oculus will comes with a tool called Medium also known as digital clay that will allow users to build 3D objects using the touch controllers.
Watch how the digital clay works.
Facebook is working towards developing a 3D scene reconstruction with Surreal Vision so as to live stream your real environment inside the virtual world, thus giving you a feel of reality.
The developments are still in nascent stage and looking at the complexity of the target, no wonder Schroepfer has asked for almost 10 additional years for a teleportation experience.
