I had to share this with you folks… I’m a die-hard Trekker (they used to call us “Trekkies”). For a long time I’ve wanted to “transport” like they do on Star Trek. It’s really quite easy – you just need about $600 bucks worth of software and a few days of migraines and voila! Better yet, you can just do a trial on Sony Vegas Pro software and if you can pull it off in under 30 days, it’s all free under the “trial” arrangement.
I have other videos in the works. One involves me “beaming” (yes, in the tie-dyed shirt) in a seated position from a park bench and “materializing” in a porta potty. Now that the learning curve is behind me, it should be a little quicker and easier. Most of the hard work is the placing of the light “beam” so you don’t see me fade in and out. It’s hard to hide a big guy…
My Dad just rolled his eyes when he saw this video. Last night he was trying to sleep and I was in the house on the 64 bit machine playing the “transporter” sound over and over and over for most of the night. No problem… A night of sleep for ten seconds of video is a fair trade-off, isn’t it?
Sadly, this is just a little video trickery. A real “transporter” would be invaluable to a van dweller. Someone knocks and you just beam out… Then again, if we had that kind of technology, there wouldn’t be vans… Living in a shuttlecraft would be nice though.
