App Giveaway: Farnsworth Video Communicator

Become an agent of Warehouse 13 and transform your iPhone into your very own Farnsworth with Farnsworth Video Communicator! You can send videos, audio and texts to other Farnsworth users, Facebook, and email.

If you couldn't tell from the video above, I'm having fun with this app :)

Turn your iPhone into a working Farnsworth just like the agents use on Warehouse 13!

  • Send and receive videos from fellow agents that look exactly like the messages do on Warehouse 13.
  • Send messages fast over any Internet connection: WiFi, 3G, CDMA and even EDGE.
  • Under deep cover or have an iDevice without a camera? You can send audio-only messages with an oscilloscope effect on-screen that matches your voice!
  • Post messages directly to Facebook - or email them directly from your Farnsworth.
  • Communicate securely. Only those you invite or those who have invited you can exchange messages with you.
  • Receive notifications of new messages – even if the Farnsworth app isn't active.
  • Install the Farnsworth app on multiple devices and your messages will be automatically copied via our server to all devices as you receive them.
  • Use the app on most iDevices, including the iPhone GS and up, iPad and iPad 2 (pixel-doubled graphics) and the iPod G4.
  • Check out the real-time shadow effects: They move as your iDevice moves.
  • Get messages directly from Warehouse 13! Artie has been known to check up on new agents in the field. And you never know when you might get an assignment from Claudia. Don't be hurt if she calls you a noob. That's a term of endearment. No, really.

App Giveaway: Farnsworth Video Communicator


Perhaps only Arite truly understands Philo Farnsworth devices. So the question is, if Mrs. Frederic is now truly dead, as it appears, is Artie actually doing this or is this a ploy by someone like HG or Sykes to plant an unsuspecting double-agent. Get me Claudia!!!! And her guitar!

This looks way cool! Sign me up!
PS - I always loved Aaron Sorkin dialog about Philo Farnsworth on the show Sports Night...

Wow so much fun! I'm a great fan of Warehouse 13. This would be so much fun to use! I think Arte would approve!

Living in the "Secret City" of Oak Ridge, TN, I have been a warehouse 13 agent for a while now, but never could get a Farnsworth issued to me. This is my chance. Please help me out with a copy !!!

I've been a fan oh WH13 since the first season. I knew it was only a matter of time that someone would make this. I hope I can find an iPhone case to match this!

Love WH13, this app is too funny. Would be cool if you could send video messages to anyone as a MMS. What's next, Tazer is going to releas a Tesler, LoL.
