I like Kaku-san when he's doing hard science (e.g. take his book on QFT for a spin) I'm not fond of this side of him who seems to lean towards comic-book style technical predictions for the sake of popularity, kind of like a 21st century Sagan. I've been pretty disappointed in his TV appearances as well. But then again, perhaps the masses enjoy this sort of stuff. Predictions are fine, but from a scientist's perspective, let's see a little meat behind it, please.

BS on several counts. Moore's Law might halt if it stays with silicon, but it looks like continuing with graphene and memristors. As for the bandwidth required to teleport even a cat, we're talking high power gamma ray beams of spectacular destructive power.
