We continue to get cool new toys to celebrate Star Trek’s 50th birthday. This Star Trek TNG ComBadge is what we have needed for years so we can communicate with our shipmates.
It has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling.
Star Trek fans who prefer the original series to its other incarnations, prepare to have a nerdgasm. You can soon get your hands on an original series Bluetooth communicator.
Inside the gadget is Bluetooth hardware and a rechargeable battery that allows you to pair it with your smartphone and actually receive calls and talk via the communicator.
As a geek I have always wanted my own communicator badges like the ones worn by characters in Star Trek – something that actually works and isn’t just decorative. Well, a company called OnBeep has a product called Onyx that could fit the bill.
Scotty. One to beam up. And hurry up, I’m hungry. I don’t want to eat my communicator and end up stranded on this alien planet. Yep, this is a gingerbread version of a standard-issue Starfleet communicator from Star Trek.
When I was a kid, I always wanted one of those communicators from Star Trek just so I could flip it open like they did on TV. I eventually got one of the toy ones, and when I grew up, I finally got a real communicator – when the cellphone came along.
What die-hard Trekkie could possibly walk around without a communicator? Now you can own this nifty remake of the original 23rd-century Starfleet communicator from the 1960s TV classic.
The modern-day replica offers up blinking lights and sounds just like the original Starfleet-issue communications gizmo.
