Everyone who has ever watched an episode of Star Trek or one of the Trek films has probably thought it would be cool to have a tricorder. Even consumer electronics maker Qualcomm wants to bring tricorders to reality.
Anyone who’s used Google Translate on a mobile device on the go has realized how close we are to getting a universal translator. While Google Translate isn’t always accurate, it does the job well enough for you to be able to get the gist of another language that you don’t speak.
Today’s youth may be preoccupied with camp vampire or camp werewolf, but we geeks have had years of our own team debate: Kirk versus Picard.

This may be the coolest mailbox ever. Too bad it can’t just phaser your junk mail before it enters the shuttlecraft docking bay. Also too bad it can’t use a tractor beam to get the mail from the box to your door.
YouTuber/Trekkie/ambient noise addict crysknife007 loves the idling engine noise in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He loves it so much that he made a 24-hour looping version of it. On video. And put it up on YouTube.
A dude going by the name Legoloverman has crafted these sweet LEGO Star Trek TNG spaceships that show one of the coolest battles that the Enterprise had with the Borg. The Borg Cube and the Enterprise were both made entirely out of LEGO bricks.
Redditor adriannezy wanted to “participate in Halloween at the absolute minimum level” at her workplace, so she went as a QR code. Well, not exactly. She went as a clever geek, who found a way to be seen wearing a costume without actually wearing one in real life.
