Facebook are creating a teleport machine!

Living in the UAE, the majority of us have family or friends somewhere else around the world, and usually the best way to stay in touch is through Facebook!

Well, facebook have noticed this, so they’ve created a teleport machine! We’re not kidding, Mike Schroepfer, Facebook’s chief technical officer said that the company plans to “Effectively build a teleporter” by 2025!

Schroepfer said "Facebook wants to build a device that allows you to be anywhere you want, with anyone, regardless of geographic boundaries,"

Though they say it’s a teleporter, it wont physically take you from Dubai to London in a flash, the plan is to improve virtual reality, to trick your senses into thinking you are somewhere else.

Starting off with Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch, which you can check out above.

But maybe this is the start… And one day planes will be the cheap, long mode of transport!
