Thinking about it, you probably need more context than that, so here we go.
Basically, in my Earth/Alt Universe world, there's this new magical rock, let's call it, stranglium! Stranglium, on touch with living matter (think plants, people, living things), becomes gold (the object in question, not the rock). As well, adding Stranglium to anything makes said thing 300% more efficient and better at its job. Coating a gun in Stranglium makes the gun 300% more accurate, powerful/faster, etc.
With that, alloying Stranglium with other things so classified that I don't even know it, creates a translucent, crystal-like object that heals, (cue cliché healing rock).
Among with other things (that I totally haven't thought of yet), I want this rock to be one of the main reasons why teleporters exist in my 1890-1970 world. Specifically during the Cold War.
Onto the teleporter, I'm looking for a few things
- I don't want to use the same excuse of "Alloying it with x,y, and z creates a material that teleports people", or applying it to the rock itself.
2.The teleporter in question should be small, it should be like the size of a large mat (x and z, not y) or something slightly bigger.
3.If possible, I want the machine NOT to use Stranglium
The list is in order of what I don't want to see/hear/etc. (1 is something that I really don't want to see, while 3 is that I expect to be broken right away). Or hell, is a teleporter even possible using this metal?
Now looking over it, this is probably really vague/not what I should be asking, but I'm really darn stuck on how to move on.
