Don’t beam me up Scotty

Imagine a teleportation device a la Star Trek. Here’s how it works. A laser at one end analyzes you atom by atom vaporizing you in the process. The analysis is sent to a 3D printer at the other end which prints you out atom by atom. The entire analysis and printing process takes less than 1 microsecond. But is the result you? If not, who or what is missing? So would you use it?
