Augmented Reality Star Trek Experience

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2009

To promote the international release of STAR TREK on May 8th, Paramount Pictures International (PPI) is today launching ‘Experience The Enterprise’; a groundbreaking augmented reality (AR) application placing a 3D interactive version of the Starship Enterprise in the palm of your hand.

Visitors to http://www.experience-the-enterprise.com/ will be given the opportunity to take an extensive five minute tour of the Enterprise, including testing the ship’s weapons systems, impulse engines and warp drive. ‘

Experience The Enterprise is built using augmented reality (AR) technology, which combines real world and computer-generated data to bring a 3D interactive version of the Starship Enterprise to life, on your desktop or in the palm of your hand.

Anybody with a webcam can take a tour of the Enterprise using the kind of futuristic technology that sits at the heart of perhaps the most popular science-fiction franchise of all time. Once underway, you are given a ‘cadet holo-simulation’ by Starfleet, the Academy in which new recruits Kirk, Spock and McCoy are enrolled at the start of the new film.

This is the first time AR has been used to bring a major film release to life in this way. The application itself was constructed using the original 3D model of the Enterprise appearing in the film, as well as featuring an array of special effects direct from the production. It was developed for PPI by creative marketing agency Picture Production Company (PPC), working in conjunction with augmented reality specialists Total Immersion.

I’ve just been sent the link to the new Star Trek fan kit. Cheers Arno. Lots of wallpapers, icons and things like that ready for the J J Abrams film next month.

To promote the release of Star Trek, Paramount Pictures International and the Picture Production Company have created a first of its kind ‘social media microsite’. Launched today, the new site will house a wealth of Star Trek-themed tools for fans to use on their profiles across the social web.

Happy International Talk Like William Shatner Day

Posted by LiveFor on March 22, 2009

Maurice LaMarche is the voice of the Brain from Pinky & the Brain. He has some news for us:

In honor of William Shatner’s 78th birthday tomorrow, 3/22/09, I am declaring March 22nd to be “International Talk Like William Shatner Day!” Hey, we have “International Talk Like a Pirate Day”, and Shatner inspired a helluva lot more kids to be like Captain James T. Kirk than any who wanted to be some smelly, toothless, “arrr”-spouting frickin’ pirate.

Now, since talking like our hero is a bit more challenging than walking around going, “Arrr”, I’ve included the following video tutorial for your edification, filmed by producer Bill Biggar, on a loooong drive to the airport on L.A.’s fabulous 405 freeway. Enjoy, and remember, it’s pronounced “sabotaaj”, not, “sabotahj”.

Could those who worship evil’s might beware Chris Pine’s power, Green Lantern’s light!

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2009

There was a rumour a little while back that a crew member of the Star Ship Enteprise could be in the running for the most powerful weapon in the Universe – a Green Lantern‘s power ring. That person was Anton Yelchin (Chekov). The internet generally said, “What the..?!” Now it looks as if half of that rumour is totally incorrect. It won’t be the weapons officer it’s the Captain. Kirk to be exact.

IESB.net has posted a rumor that Star Trek’s Chris Pine (“James T. Kirk”) is being eyed as the title character in Warner Brothers’ upcoming Green Lantern movie.

Pine would play Hal Jordan, a pilot who finds a powerful ring and its lantern-like battery when a spaceship crashes on Earth. Jordan is selected to succeed the craft’s dying occupant as the next Green Lantern, a galactic guardian who is a member of an interstellar corps, the site reported, citing an anonymous source.

The movie has set up production offices and is on track to start shooting in September in Australia for the previously announced 17th December 2010 release date.

Pine is reportedly at the top of a list that also supposedly includes Terminator Salvation’s Sam Worthington.

Neither Pine or Worthingtom seem Hal Jordanny enough. They are apparantly going for someone under 30 so Nathan Fillion and Aaron Eckhart are out. I just don’t know. Would you be happy with Chris Pine as the Green Lantern of sector 2814? If not him who could it be?
