Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This is pretty far off topic.  

However:  I do not know enough physics to know if it is possible; only enough to know how I would try to do it.  The basic idea would be to use the difference between the interference patterns that can be generated when particles do not choose, versus the lack of interference pattern that occurs when they are forced to choose.  Obviously the particles would be in batches--sequences--long enough to reliably create such patterns.  

Of technical problems, there should be many.  

Theoretically, it would be very interesting.  

The earth is only 21 light-milliseconds across.  I don't think it will improve cellphones much.  

The Fates are kind.
