Get Your Very Own Warehouse 13 Farnsworth Video Communicator App

I’ve grown to really enjoy Warehouse 13 once I got used to the idea that the show wasn’t going to be darker version of the X-Files . A lot of the show’s I watch are pretty bleak so it’s good to space out the death and destruction with a little light relief.

I’ve always had a soft spot for is the Farnsworth, which is the  retro, steampunk communication device they use in the show. Now thanks to QMx Interactive we can all get out hands on our own person  Farnsworth Video Communicatior via an app for the iPhone.

I’ve not had a go on it yet (I sadly don’t have an iPhone) but if the screenshots are anything to go by this looks like a bloody cool app. Check out the press release below the images for more info.

QMx Interactive Launches Warehouse 13 Farnsworth Video Communicator App

LOS ANGELES – November 2, 2011 – QMx Interactive is bringing the latest Warehouse 13 technology to iPhone users! Keep in touch with friends, family and other agents with the Warehouse 13 Farnsworth Video Communicator App, which is officially licensed by NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group. Exchange video and audio messages, create and share your own missions – all in the signature interface of the steampunk communications device from the hit Syfy TV series.

With just a quick download from the iTunesAppStore, users can send and receive video or audio-only messages over any Internet connection, communicating securely with other “agents” who are also using the application. There are even video messages from junior Warehouse agent Claudia Donovan and lead agent Artie Nielsen, who offer tips directly from the Warehouse (with more to come). The app’s lightning-fast message exchange is made possible by the QMxchange mobile messaging platform, which also allows users to install the Farnsworth Video Communicator on multiple devices and sync them all together. The app is compatible with most iDevices, including the iPhone GS and up, iPad/iPad 2 and the iPod G4.

The Farnsworth Video Communicator benefits from the knowledge and experience of Quantum Mechanix Inc. – QMx Interactive’s sister company – which, in addition to making screen-accurate prop replicas, apparel, maquettes and novelties for Warehouse 13, also creates the actual Farnsworth prop seen on the popular series.

The most successful series in Syfy history, Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), young apprentice Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and newcomer Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the Warehouse itself. CCH Pounder plays the Warehouse’s mysterious caretaker, Mrs. Frederic.

Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is executive producer.

    When will this be available for android users? I have seen thousands, maybe millions even, requests from other android users and myself for access to this app! Please stop alienating us! It’s horrible! Complete technological racism!
