A Molecular Transporter Would Be Helpful

First attempt at a “Beaming Video”… It needs a little tweaking but it’s a start…

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.

Have fun.

About VanTrekker

I am a former vandweller in Eastern Iowa who, for several years (off and on), lived in a 2007 Chevy cargo van. I still travel around Iowa with my tortoise shell cat, Jennifer Stefanie. Our favorite place to explore is the Country Heritage Community, the four far northeastern counties of Iowa (Clayton, Winneshiek, Allamakee, and Fayette). Ride along as we fish in pristine trout streams, enjoy fine home cooked camping meals, and meet new people. It's all possible on a shoestring budget. Happy travels always! --- Brad, the "Van Trekker"

    Hmmm… I see nothing in your demo window. Perhaps you really were beamed up? It’s probably because I refuse to load Flash onto my new laptop. Oh well. Anyway, I enjoy reading about your Van Trekking.

  4. Hey, nice choice of van!!!! Liking it…and the beaming and the shirt.
