Using electricity from a wind farm to power a house fan is basically a teleporter for wind.

Same goes for using solar power for lights.

Hmm but a very inefficient one.

Using solar power to charge a battery which is later used to power a lightbulb ... is a time machine for light!

It's more like going into a teleporter and your toenails coming out the other side.
14 Aug 2017 00:21 - +11
It's not the same wind though. Which brings up disturbing thoughts about people constantly using teleporters in shows like Star Trek.

I'd like to make an investment in your mind please

And a telephone is a teleporter for your voice
14 Aug 2017 00:04 - +3
so solar powered lights are teleporter for lights

Well.. I guess? If we killed you to power a human making machine, did we transport you?
14 Aug 2017 01:36 - +1
Then this post is basically a teleporter of the same shitty post like two months ago. Makes about the same amount of sense.

Try telling that to the town I live in. Currently blocking us from putting up turbines on our farm land.

Using coal to power light bulbs is like opening time capsules of sunlight.

We may be closer to teleportation than we think.
14 Aug 2017 00:52 - +1
Isn't all energy from the sun though? Wind is created by the sun's warmth. Fossil fuels were made from plant material, which grew from the sun's energy. Tidal energy from the sun. Nuclear is just material enriched enough to put out energy using energy from sources from the sun. Hydro is from water brought to a high altitude by the sun evaporating it. Geothermal is FUCK.

This is the kinda shit I come here for. Thank you OP.

How long till there are human trials of this "teleportation technology." I bet it would yield results similar to walking dead.
14 Aug 2017 01:09 - +1
You can actually take a regular motor and hook it up to another regular motor. If one spins, the other spins too (with some power loss). Put a propeller on either side and you've got yourself a wind teleporter.
14 Aug 2017 01:13 - +1
This is the first post in this sub that actually made me think. Good one.

So does that make a video camera a teleporter for pictures, and phones a teleporter for sound?
14 Aug 2017 01:11 - +1
Dude... that must've been a good shower

No it isn't

Storing the power in a battery and then using it later could be considered time dilation by your logic
14 Aug 2017 01:16 - +1
Same goes for burning wood and sunlight
14 Aug 2017 00:56 - +1
Think about how terribly inefficient this is. Just sayin'

I mean you could say it literally bends space and time because it can be anywhere at anytime
13 Aug 2017 23:58 - +1
Booooo
14 Aug 2017 01:08 - +1
No, because due to physics you will always lose some power in the process, so it is like a teleporter where you wake up 10 years older.

Basically energy is transferred from one form to another, reinventing science , are we?
14 Aug 2017 00:13 - +1
Fax machines use the same technology
14 Aug 2017 01:09 - +1
or like nuclear power to take X-rays

This is why I love this sub, so many clever posts!
14 Aug 2017 01:12 - +1
So then phones are teleporters too?

Black magic fuckery: get two Lego motors and connect them together with a cable brick, then place them back to back so the shafts are in line. When you twist one shaft back and forth with your fingers, the other end will match the twists so exactly that you can't tell there's a break, the shaft appears as just one solid bar. Then you move the motors apart so you can see the shafts are not mechanically the same bar, and twist it again.

Teleporters shouldn't need wires between ends.

Not really teleporting any air or wind are you though?
14 Aug 2017 01:21 - +1
Technically no, since it isn't the same air, but it does show an interesting way we transfer power.

we can transport wind through 20 feet of concrete using a wire. science is pretty cool.
14 Aug 2017 01:25 - +1
What is this is how we end up inventing teleportation? a 3D printer that's powered by human matter that destroys your body and re-prints it out somewhere else. Sounds painless!
14 Aug 2017 00:51 - +1
r/lightbulb mini-wormhole as a fan. Teleport wind from a windy area to your face.
