Food replicators, here we come!
Seems cool:
PHYSICISTS PROVE YOU CAN MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING BY SIMULATING COSMIC PHYSICS
Summary:
-research team working at the University of Machester
-January 2022
quote:
...scientists were working on the conduction of “valence electrons,” essentially trying to get all classes of electrons to join the flow by tinkering with graphene, a material that is effectively two-dimensional in nature. This unique structure helps this type of experiment by limiting the routes elementary particles like electrons can take, hopefully resulting in an essentially uniform flow of electrons if the right amount of electrical energy is pumped into the system. However, once the team actually started their experiments, something unexpected happened.

“We just wondered what could happen at this extreme,” said Xin. “To our surprise, it was the Schwinger effect rather than smoke coming out of our set-up.”
-sort of using an electric field to create particle/anti-particle pairs
-electric field is "something;" but "nothing" doesn't really exist in this sense (it's not possible to have "no fields")
-where there was no matter before, matter was created
quote:
“We really can make something from absolutely nothing!”
