So currently, there are a few different ways of transportation. Walking, swimming, pigging, flying, etc. in some cases, I feel we need a way to cover ground quickly, without needing to change out armor or worrying about damage. Rift orbs are throwable items not affected by gravity. They will activate after traveling about five blocks or when they hit a block. When activated, the orb will summon a rift (signified by purple portal particles) walking into the rift will cause a distortion in space time (not literally) and propel the player Forwards at a high speed with an upward angle. If you were to use this on a superflat world, you’d be able to cover around 35-50 blocks in no time at all, or it can be used to kick start your elytra. When the player is propelled forward, the will play an animation similar to when riptide is used, but with more portal/spacey effects. When the player hits land, they do not take damage. The animation and forward motion can be stopped simply by pressing space bar. This can be used to again, kickstart an elytra. I hope something like this gets added because in some cases, you want a fast way to travel, kickstart your elytra, or just prank a friend. It would also be nice seeing how Minecraft is lacking unique items like this.
