Beam Me Up Star Trek App Nominated For a Webby Award
This news should surprise no one, especially those Star Trek fans in attendance last fall at Destination Star Trek London. CBS Action’s “Beam Me Up” Star Trek app has been nominated for a Webby People’s Voice Award. Created by Realise Digital, the mobile app employs augmented reality that enables fans to “beam” off a Star Trek transporter by pointing the app at a specially constructed stage. The app also boasted interviews, exclusive show content and trailers for the Star Trek shows. At the CBS Action booth at Destination Star Trek London, the app experience was viewed more than 6,000 times and 4,000-plus people downloaded the app during the weekend-long event.
The Webby Awards, “honoring the best of the Web,” as their logo states, have nominated the “Beam Me Up” app in the Interactive Advertising & Media/Individual/Augmented Reality category. Voting is open to the public now through 11:59 p.m. PT on Thursday April 25th. Click HERE to vote.
