A Brief History of the Future What if teleportation was really possible Englishman Richie Fisher is about to find out Richie and his wife Clara have won a weekend in New York in a newspaper competition While Clara is off blowing their spending money, Richie wanders aimlessly, chewing on a veggie burger, ending up in a gift shop where he finds himself standing in front of an instant transporter machine It looks nothing like the open plan teleporter on Captain Kirk s Starship Enterprise in fact, it seems like a glorified microwave ovenRichie places his burger inside, hits the return key on the linked up computer and the burger disappears But if he can teleport a half eaten veggie burger, what else could you do with the machine For criminals, the possibilities are endless Who could catch you if you beamed drugs into nostrils a hundred miles away And how much would illegal immigrants pay to be teleported into the rich host country of their choice Richie buys a teleporter and takes it back to England, where the chaos begins
