'Quantum magic' without any 'spooky action at a distance'

The quantum mechanical entanglement is at the heart of the famous quantum teleportation experiment and was referred to by Albert Einstein as "spooky action at a distance". A team of researchers used a system which does not allow for entanglement, and still found results which cannot be interpreted classically.
