Future of Moving: Update

My Future of Moving post (asking how the barbaric process of packing and moving one's possessions might be improved by future technology) drew lots of email, plus a few comments. No one had much speculation to offer. But, upon further thought, the answer probably involves two staples of science fiction: robots and matter assembly.

Robots everyone knows about. Matter assembly, which no one expects any time soon, would involve a process of analyzing an object, vaporizing it, and sending the data to another location to reassemble the same object.

Next weighty question...?
