The Star Trek phone

Star Trek Communicator

(From Daily Mail) It is every Star Trek fan’s come true – a working communicator then can use instead of their phone.

A US gadget firm has revealed it has used 3D scans of the original TV prop to create the first working Communicator.

It can act as a bluetooth headset to make and receive calls, play audio clips from the show and act as a speaker.

‘For nearly 50 years, 700 hours of content from six television series and eleven movies, has made Star Trek into an entertainment and pop culture icon across the world,’ said the firm making the replica.

‘The Wand Company’s Star Trek Original Series Communicator is the most accurate replica ever made, designed using the first ever structured-light 3D scans taken of the Alpha Hero Prop, crammed full of advanced technology, bringing new levels of action and immersion for Star Trek fans of all ages.’

The new version comes with Bluetooth for pairing with mobile phones, and is made from pressed metal, die cast metal, machined aluminum and textured ABS to replicate the original hero prop.

The unit is stored on a magnetic stand, with metal base and multi-colour LED charge status illumination, and comes with its own travel case.

A built in microphone and speaker can also play what the firm says is ‘a wide range of authentic sound effects and conversation fragments from the Star Trek Universe.

However, fans will have to wait a little longer to fulfil their dreams, as the first units will not ship until 2016.
