Teleportation has been rife in sci-fi fiction for years. Look at the way the Star Trek team casually teleport themselves around the galaxy on a near hourly basis, or the devastating effects of teleportation on Seth Brundle in Cronenburg’s 1986 classic The Fly.

But, it’s something that scientists here in the real world have yet to master, much to the dismay of those who have to sit in heavy traffic every morning as part of their daily commute, or people who can’t stand to travel by plane.

However, earlier this week Discovery News reported that scientists in Australia and Japan have successfully teleported “packets of light”, so surely the next step is teleporting us to the office in the morning, right?
