    This type of technolgy has been around a long time.

    It was also in a james bond movie yrs ago.

    When it was first developed the military looked at it
    And turned it down because one of the main problems
    With it is the amount of fuel a person can carry.
    Only about 20 seconds worth of flight time.

    Time the actual flight time and you will see there
    Has been no real advancement from the original.

    Well though the advancement hasn't been done but in terms of recognizing the old technology and try to show its existence again to the world is quite a good effort.

    I am sure one day people will be able to fly like that, without costing too much fuel. We just have to wait and see

    Maybe some day you will just walk into a room and be
    Dematerialized and then put back together at your destination

    Beam me up Scotti.

    Yep, and if all the prophecies come true in 2012 we will not
    Have to worry about going from here to there.

    Have you ever read anything about the Philadelphia Experiment?

    That happened at the Royal Gorge, about an hour south of where I live. This guy was on the local news and everything...

    I went to the Royal Gorge when my parents came out to visit in September, and I was scared just to walk across the bridge!
