Article: Scientists teleport two different objects

CNN.com reports: "Beaming people in 'Star Trek' fashion is still in the realms of science fiction, but physicists in Denmark have teleported information from light to matter bringing quantum communication and computing closer to reality."

Scientists in Denmark are playing with technology that is going to take us one baby step closer toward Star Trek like transporters. They figured out how to teleport billions of atoms from one location to another (about 18 inches) using technology they call 'entanglement.' The technology they developed uses light, quantum mechanics, and magnetism.
