This is ridiculous. Obviously not possible. Some kind of scam.

Meanwhile, did you see the announcement last week of a breakthrough in
matter transfer over TCP/IP? There's an RFC describing a new protocol -
SMTP (Solid Matter Transfer Protocol - apparently there's some problem with
the name), USRobotics' AtomBlaster modem is in late testing, Cisco have a
matter router in the works and Bill Gates was quoted as saying "we think
matter will be the big driver in the next decade. Bits are dead. It's time
for the atoms to make their long-delayed comeback. Long live stuff!"
