Although it didn’t last as long as some had hoped, Star Trek became a classic series, known the world over. I’m sure many a Star Trek fan has dreamed of owning functional Star Trek equipment. If you’re one of those fans I have great news. The Wand Company has just created a working version of the original Star Trek communicator. The device, which was created using 3-D scanning, is an exact replica of the prop used in the show. More importantly, the communicator pairs to your smartphone via Bluetooth; you can use it to make calls or stream music. Finally, the communicator has built-in wireless charging so you never have to worry about replacing its batteries.
If you want to be the envy of nerds everywhere, the communicator is available for pre-order for $149.95 from the Star Trek Shop. Unfortunately, it won’t be available until January 2016, but that’s still almost 250 years ahead of schedule.
