Hede.io Entry: Star Trek Replicator
A replicator is one of the fictional futuristic technologies featured in the
Star Trek franchise. In some ways it is like a futuristic
3D printer. A replicator is a type of matter converter that used
teleportation technology to dematerialize matter down to the
subatomic level and then rematerialize that matter into another form. Replicators could also do the reverse operation and recycle leftovers and waste into basic matter which could be stored for later use.
Replicators have limits to their ability to replicate objects. The object to be replicated has to be on file. If no file exists a file has to be created with assembling instructions for the replicator. If the molecular or
quantum structure is too complex the replicator cannot assemble the object. Other rules can also be programmed such as not allowing the replicator to produce weapons or poisons.
