Since he paid his application fee, why not grant him the patent just for laughs? His "invention" is only granted a monopoly for 20 years, and I get the feeling we will not be witnessing full body teleportation within that time frame :)

Seems to be possible.Why not a research by the Government be initiated? Waves can carry us and tele port us safely. Olden days many such things had happened by making extraordinarily superior prayers.

I'd just like to see the "inventor's" original full-body teleportation experience repeated. While I don't want to underestimate the wacky nature of the human condition, I wonder if this could actually be a spoof patent application to see if it gets past the examiners and if it did, the author would get on the talk show circuit with a story to tell!

The inventor certainly offers an interesting concept, but I see some potential problems in creating the working model. On the other hand, any infringement claims may be difficult to disprove.

A doodle? And an assumption? He's off his meds! Still wouldn't surprise me if they granted it. Reality seems to have left the building... :-) Bryan

@ Brian My guess is that the operating principles of the pulsed gravitational wave wormhole generator system is too broad. Tighten it up a bit and it will go through. Note that tlhIngan Hol was not officially recognized as a language because it lacked enough words and rules needed for it to be able to used to communicate more than just a few ideas, but was reconsidered and accepted after enough documentation was produced to the government. The U.S. Patent Office is not not different. I'll just leave it at that :)

You need to check out US Patent 6025810. These guys need to work together.

Not so crazy after all. Renowned gravitational wave scientist Dr Robert M. L. Baker, Jr. was issued a patent for a similar method of gravity wave propulsion in 2002. http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=6,417,597.PN.&OS=PN/6,417,597&RS=PN/6,417,597

I only got mine working over a Planck distance. As a consequence, nobody believed that it worked. I think it simply needs more power.

I think the guy deserves the patent, but perhaps the claims should be rewritten to indicate the laughing phenomena created by the patent should be protected. In fact, can jokes be patented. I guess not, that would be copyright, but what is fair use on a joke? Hmmmm such an IP dilemma.
