Technology

If you know Star Trek you might recognize this as a Transporter. It's an old toy I dug out of my closet.... yeah, I'm a nerd...so what? I put C3PO and R2D2 inside it to demonstrate. It breaks you down into sub-atomic particles and re-assembles you at your destination. Okay, it's just science fiction TECHNOLOGY, but maybe one day it could be reality.... then I'd never be late again! Beam me up Scotty!

Happy Photohunting :) Live Long and Prosper.

sachiko said...

greetings from ghee's friend,sushiyama!

Caylynn said...

Very cool! Too funny that you've used a piece of Star Trek technology to "transport" Star Wars characters! :D

It would be wonderful if transporter technology would become reality!

Have a good weekend. :)

Skittles said...

How cool is that!!!!

Chris said...

Fantastic set of photos, good pick! (and pic...)

Linda said...

I so wish that someone could have invented transporters by now considering I hate the amount of traffic that is on the road these days! It would make it so much easier if I could "beam" a paramedic over to a scene!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jane said...

I know tons of adult kids who would love to play with that toy!! In fact a few of us were talking about the transporters the other day. You know, when we were kids cell phones were just a dream... A transporter would make my day SO much easier!

tina said...

It can happen... if the people willed it to be. hehe

srp said...

Thanks for visiting.... a toy you say.... hmmm..... what happened to the characters? It would be nice to either have a transporter or be able to twitch your nose like Samantha on Bewitched to get where you're going to.... no more traffic jams!

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh so cool!!! I'm a star wars fan. I still have the old version of an At At! Lordy. :o)

Mine's posted.
Enjoy your weekend, and if you have time, drop by and say howdy!!!

Biker Betty said...

That is REALLY cool!! I love your transporter. With the way technology is, I bet there will be one someday. I just won't be the guinea pig, lol. Great idea and thanks for sharing.

Have a great weekend :)

Teena said...

Very cool!

Mine's up :)

mar said...

Great choice!!!! what fun toys but they could be reality soon thanks to improved technology, ha!

Mike said...

If only it were real. Wouldn't that be a blast. Vacations would be so nice then. A good post for the hunt.

PastorMac's Ann said...

Too cool! Love Star Trek!

Great choice for the Hunt.

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

That is wonderful. It may be Technology fiction but where did some of our technologies come from now, they also came from fiction that some of them came true.
Mine is up too.

Angelo de los Angeles said...

Tina: Sana! I really hate traffic kasi!

Srp: I transported them to the surface :) Yeah that would be cool too, I really have a tendency to be late because of traffic!

Hootin Anni: COOL! I used to have the original AT-AT when I was a kid.... I got another one as an adult, I think they're pretty much the same... Happy hunting!

Biker Betty: Yeah, I think I would wait a while too before trying out that new technology, if or when it becomes a reality :)
