    I found an interesting article where physicists theorize entangled quantum batteries. Here's a snippet:

    A dream come true? A perfect battery which doesn't lose any energy when it's transferred.
    By the way nature uses such "batteries" for ages. Photosynthesis achieves perfect energy transfer but nobody knows how. Ok ok ... theories are always easier than real life.

    let's talk about the entangled sisters that you have sex with

    This thread is only for things that could actually happen. Two diamonds connected across trillions of miles? yep. two sisters you'd want to have sex with also that want to have sex with you? Not plausible. Literally impossible. :roll:

    the sisters is more probable than some funky battery.

    If you understood the principals of quantum entanglement you would realize how silly it is to ask that question on so many levels.

    First Quantum entanglement is the classical equal of having mirrored pairs, color is used as a way to think about a "state" of an object, not as an actual color, at quantum levels color does not exist as our perception of color is merely electromagnetic radiation of a specific wavelength exciting rods and cones and thus neurons, and this radiation is measured in nm. [​IMG]

    Whereas "If the size of the quantum dot is small enough that the quantum confinement effects dominate (typically less than 10 nm), the electronic and optical properties are highly tunable. Splitting of energy levels for small quantum dots due to the quantum confinement effect."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_dot

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_entanglement

    Now imagine one photon that gets split into two lower state photons, each will represent half of the original state of the original photon. They are mirrored in the fact they each have half the energy of the original photon, and are equal but opposite. So if one is polarized in the Y space the other will be polarized in the X space, this follows the conservation laws. The reason this cannot lead to FTL communications is the same reason sweeping a laser across the surface of the moon from the earth does not cause your laser beam to travel faster than light.

    ............X
    A<
    ............Y

    A knows its state or entropy, the same amount of time passes for Y and X and the quantum superposition collapses when X or Y are measured, but neither can know the position of each other unless they originally knew the position of A, and neither knows the state of the other until one or both are measured which by measurement causes the unknown state to collapse, the only way to know all of this is to have the measurement taken at the exact same time in order to preserve data, which then brings us back to time being the great equalizing factor.
