The Teleportation device was created by Walter Bishop and stored it in a series of safety deposit boxes around the East Coast of the U.S. Earlier the evidence of thefts of these safety deposit boxes was encountered by the Fringe Division, but they did not make the connection that parts of this system were being stolen. However, David Robert Jones apparently used the device to escape his prison cell in Germany.
The system can apparently teleport a person from a place via some kind of tuned markers. Ultimately David Robert Jones was teleported to Little Hill Field by Mitchell Loeb. The side-effects of teleportation on a human appear to be a combination of mild (possible sunburn and temporary blindness) to severe (something like decompression sickness). ("Safe") ("Ability")
