Replicating objects

  1. Sep 4, 2011 #1
    So I've started a few threads here and there about teleportation and molecular assemblers, but I think that what I'm really curious about is the idea of essentially replicating, atom-for-atom, a macroscopic object. It seems to me that molecular assemblers would be the best way to do that, but is there any other method that could be used that doesn't violate any known physical laws?

    In your other thread about molecular assemblers, ryan has some excellent answers on this topic but you appear to be ignoring them. He has highlighted many of the huge hurdles in the way of accomplishing a replica and they won't go away by using a different 'method'.
