Will quantum teleportation be the future transportation mode for humans?
quantum teleportation has been used to transfer information
At present, quantum teleportation has been used to transfer information about the state a physical system, e.g. the polarization of a photon or the excitation of an atom. But that is different from teleporting the actual photon or atom, and (as far as I know) there is not a way to perform that latter type of teleportation.
I have heard arguments that in principle the state of a person could be teleported. But practical constraints, such as the complexiety of the system, would seem to prohibit this example of quantum teleportation from being realized.
Please follow up if this is unclear.

eerr, since when?! transfer of *information* instantaneously?so information *can* travel from A to B faster than light in a vacuum?...
