Justice Department later reverse engineers the technology to create their own dimensional teleporters. In the "Helter Skelter" story they're forced to destroy their own D-jump technology after a nearly successful invasion by Dredd's enemies from other dimensions.

* ''Series/TheManInTheHighCastle'': The ''I-Ching'' allows Trade Minister Tagomi to visit the mainstream universe where the Axis powers actually lost the war. In season 2 he spends significant time there with his alternate family in the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis. It turns out that [[spoiler:his aide Kotomichi]] is actually from our universe, and travelled to the main setting of the show because his family who died in the atomic bombing of Nagasaki were still alive there.

* This is Uchiha Obito's main Mangekyo Sharingan ability. He can use his eye to travel to an alternate dimension at will. He can even send parts of his body when in danger so he could dodge at the last second, giving the illusion that he is an IntangibleMan. He instinctually teleports the portion of his body that intersects with an attack into an alternate dimension. He can even reach other dimensions, but it costs a ridiculous amout of stamina and chakra to do that.

* ''Film/{{Parallels}}'' has an entire derelict building that shunts people about randomly throught [[TheMultiverse the Multiverse]]. [[spoiler: Best guess so far is that it was built by some sort of awesomely advanced version of humanity that's either forgotten about it or doesn't much care about the havoc it's wreaking across hundreds of alternate Earths.]]

** In the same episode, the Dalek-built Void Ship (that created the tear between realities) was designed to traverse the void, or the extradimensional space bewteen universes. When it was in void transit mode, it was visible, but otherwise didn't exist (scans reported it as having no mass or dimension), and was described as creepy to look at. When the void transit functionality was switched off (just prior to the Daleks emerging), it "became" a normal vehicle with normal mass/etc.
** The Time Lords did this on a reagular basis before they died out.
* In ''TheMonkees 1997'' ABC special, ''Hey, Hey, It's the Monkees'', we learn that Mike had turned [[CoolCar the Monkeemobile]] into a dimension machine (AND lowrider, of all things). It's even capable of transporting them back to TheSixties.

* In ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', Serge uses Kid's astral amulet to travel between his world and the other world which was created 10 years ago due to a universal split where Serge is alive in one universe and dead in the other. See SchrodingersCat
* In ''VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity'', the psychetron created by Dr. Neo Cortex can travel between Crash's world and the 10th dimension and most of the game is based around gathering the power crystals needed to power the device so Crash Bandicoot can get to the 10th dimension to save his world.
* The "ancient ruins" that are the goal of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} 3: Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream'' turn out to be a Hyperprobability Space Vessel used by Yumemi and Chiyuri to travel from their own world to Gensokyo in search of the secrets of magic.
* While not a device, there are two main methods shown in ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourney'' and ''VideoGame/{{Dreamfall}}'' that allow travel between the various worlds. Shifters are people who physically travel via portal they themselves open. Normally they can only travel between Stark (the world of technology) and Arcadia (the world of magic). April actually had to fly into space in Stark in order to get to the Guardian's Realm via a wormhole of some sort. The sequel also introduces Dreamers, people who fall asleep in one world and project a physical double into another one. The reason both types of people are able to cross between worlds is because all these worlds used to be one until they were split up by powerful wizards and scientists with the help from some space dragons in order to keep the world from the being destroyed.
* The Yamato Perpetual Reactor in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV''. [[spoiler:With just the correct push, it can also serve as a handy multiverse-crushing black hole-creating machine.]]
* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank''. The Dimensionator. Created by the Lombaxes to end the Great War against the Cragmites, they allow its user to open portals to any dimension merely by telling the device what to find.
* In ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'', [[spoiler:''[[CelebrityParadox Phantasy Star Online 2]]'' serves as this, linking the dimension that hosts Oracle and ARKS to that of Earth.]]
* The titular book of ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'', which can transport whoever reads the appropriate incantation contained within between their home world and the world of Rakenzarn.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'': Professor Hubert Farnsworth accidentally creates a box that contains another universe where the outcome of every coinflip is reversed. The other universe's Farnsworth created a box containing the main universe. The two Farnsworths wind up creating a ton of more such boxes during the episode.
* On ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', the Turtles use the transdimensional portal, a technology that allows travel to alternate universes. It is most commonly used in the 1987 cartoon series. Another approach is used in ''TurtlesForever''; the teenage mutant ninja turtles use a dimensional portal stick to go to the 1987 universe.
