How to Beam Yourself Into the Calgary Expo / by Trek fm

Canada has its fair share of Trek—William Shatner and the City of Vulcan to name just two of the country’s connections. Now Star Trek fans in Calgary can be the first to beam themselves up to the 24th Century with a new collaboration between the City of Vulcan and the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo.

It’s all thanks to some ingenious Augmented Reality technology that combines the Vulcan Tourism Transporter App for iPhone and iPad with specially designed bus shelters. It’s part of the TNG 25th Anniversary celebration that will see the nine principal cast members reunited at the Calgary Expo April 27-29.

Following the Expo, the technology will be over permanently to the City of Vulcan, Alberta, and will be available for fans at Spock Days in June. Visit for more details about the TNG reunion, and watch the full demonstration video below.
