    It is going to have to be operable from my smart phone. The user interface on the phone needs to be of 'retro' design - must appear to have knobs and analog meters. Other than that, just go with your gut. Thanks for asking.

    I probably won't sell that many, since it would be advertised "as is" and "hasn't been tested.":lol::D;)

    Once you decide on the functional aspects of the machine, you need to have John Backlund design the exterior.

    Make sure that it accounts for Earth's movement through space or you may have to have some uncomfortable conversations.

    It will need a soundtrack but I'm sure you have a few licks to use for it.

    Would it have a function that enables the operator to teleport certain people to another time or space without them requesting it? It would be a key selling point.
    If so, put me down for two. Will there be any discount for TDPRI members?

    An obvious parameter that modulates the teleportation effect is Quarks per Second (QpS), with a range of 0 to 3X10e12. You should build the device to allow this range to be altered, depending on time from moment of use until the heat death of the universe. A 56K pot should do the job.

    I was prototyping that-
    I called it the "Quark-bender"
    But the parts I ordered kept coming in for a "Quark-remover" instead.

    I know you are trying to avoid 'scope creep' but, one feature that should be an option is a switch for pain removal and a switch for pain memory removal. This feature would remove any physical pain you are feeling at the time of teleport so at the other side you will feel fine. Also, a second switch would remove from the user's entire memory any pain they ever felt. Essentially, once through the teleportation, you would feel no pain and, if chosen, not have any sense of what pain feels like.

    Goodbye Uber. Once safe for human travel, every bar in the US will want one.
