If you have always wanted to be able to talk to your buddy using Star Trek style communicators, you are in luck. You don’t have to buy one of those silly kid’s walkie-talkie sets either. You can truly show your loyalty to Starfleet with a Bluetooth-enabled original series Communicator, complete with a microphone so you can make and answer calls like a Vulcan.
Accessory maker The Wand Company, creators of the Wizard’s Wand remote control (as well as a few other awesome pop culture replica gadgets), claims the Communicator is “the most accurate replica ever made” because it was patterned after a structured-light 3-D scan of the Alpha hero prop from the TV show.
Wand’s new Star Trek Communicator is a Bluetooth-enabled handset made from pressed and die cast metal, machined aluminum, and textured ABS that replicates the original prop in detail. It features wireless charging on a magnetic stand with a metal base and has multi-colored LED lights to show charging status.
You can also use it as a Bluetooth speaker (which makes sense, since Kirk rarely actually held his communicator to his head).
The Communicator includes a high-quality speaker for streaming music and audio, plus, a MEMS microphone for talking on the phone. That’s right, you can really communicate with this Communicator.
It also features a range of authentic Star Trek sound effects, as well as clips from the shows and movies.
The Star Trek Communicator Bluetooth handset costs $150, which might be a high price to pay for a speaker, but can you really put a price on your love of Star Trek? It is expected to ship in January of 2016. You can preorder today from the company’s website.
