Want a “Real” Star Trek Communicator? You Got It.

communicator-5-595x640

That’s right, you heard correctly. You will soon be able to flip open a communicator and call Scottie. If you have his number. The Wand Company, makers of the Harry Potter Wand Universal Remote and the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote, have announced that they’ll be unveiling a Star Trek Communicator that connects to your phone as a bluetooth speaker at Comic-con this year. The device answers calls by flipping open, and works as both a speaker and a microphone, so that you can communicate just as if you were Kirk stranded on an alien planet. It was made with something called “structured light 3D scanning,” which the makes boast makes it as accurate a replica of the original prop as is humanly possible. I’ll leave it to all my Trekkie friends to let me know if that’s true. Hit the jump for a full gallery of pictures of this stunningly beautiful piece, and let us know if you’re picking one up in the comments! Preorders were available right here for a bit, but it looks like they’re sold out right now. Hopefully more stock is made soon!
