You just can’t keep a good rumor down. One would think Apple aficionados would have enough to talk about, what with Snow Leopard now gracing the machines of any Mac-owner willing to pony up the paltry $29 Apple asking price.
I guess not.
While other replicas only look awesome or have loopy sound effects, Ameralis Grafx‘ Tricorder PMP-09 is not only a replica of the famous Star Trek tricorder, it also serves as a portable media player.
It’s equipped with a 2.8″
Neatorama recently posted a bunch of Star Trek cakes, which I assume would be the perfect food for your Star Trek marathons. They’re also unhealthy, but who cares right? All for the sake of awesome. Here’s one of them, a cute and miniature bridge scene on top of an otherwise ordinary base made by reality TV show “Ace of Cakes”:
Here’s another one, a fairly large replica of the Enterprise made by European Cake Gallery.
I’m not a particularly huge Star Trek fan–not the dressing-up kind, just the appreciating, occasionally-watching kind–but even I have to say that this is probably the most awesome crib in the history of cribs. If Cribs was about cribs instead of cribs, this would have its own show, even though it’s a cradle.
Not enough for you?
Sure, you may have loved J.J. Abrams updated take on Star Trek, but it just didn’t have enough tribbles for my taste. Thankfully, there’s a solution for the recent tribble shortage.
Now you can be the proud owner of your own roomful of the little purring furrballs.
These interactive replicas of the original TV critters not only look just like the originals, but they vibrate and emit a friendly cooing sound when you move them.
Knit and crochet dolls are cute simply by definition, so you really don’t have to go the extra mile to summon a chorus of “awww.” If you do, however–and Alison Oddy sure did–the effect can be dramatic.
Straight from the what files come these geektastic corsets designed to evoke Star Wars and Star Trek character, and I can’t decide if they’d make great Halloween costumes, or if they look like something from an adult film parody of the classics.
One thing is indisputable: the workmanship that went into these costumes and corsets, by EveningArwen, is amazing.
I just got back from watching the glorious new Star Trek movie, so I must have the Enterprise on the brain. And while this tiny Starship Enterprise isn’t quite as dramatic as the mammoth star vessel from the film, it’s just as cool in my book.
With all of the buzz surrounding the release of the new Star Trek movie, here’s a little something to remind you of the kinder, gentler days of the original series (or ST: TOS for those in the know).
This life-size replica is a dead-ringer for Captain Kirk’s original swivel-throne from the bridge of the Starship Enterprise.
So with the new Star Trek movie taking critics by storm, it’s only natural that people are flocking to the franchise’s fandom ranks, and that means more and more folks are going to be slapping Star Trek insignia on anything with a semi-flat surface.
30 versions of the USS Enterprise are being distributed to cinemas across the United States to promote the upcoming Star Trek movie. Each 34-in replica was cast from the same 3D model made for the movie by Industrial Light & Magic.
Trekkies like candies too. This limited edition, 8-piece Star Trek Pez gift set is further proof that Trekkies aren’t so different from you and me and therefore must not be shunned, no matter how obsessed they are with made up languages and men that wear headbands over their eyes.
The set features the USS Enterprise and its crew: Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, Chekhov, Hulu, Boxee, and Xubuntu.
How much of a Trekkie (or -er) are you? How far would you go? Roleplaying? Dressing up in costumes? Being fired into space in a photon torpedo casket?
I’m not a Star Trek fan, but I must admit that the casket’s really decent; the logo is fairly small and the Photon Torpedo-inspired design is sleek.
Heads up Trekkies: Cherry Keyboards are currently selling Klingon Keyboards. Yes, it has Klingon font as well as some English numbers. It’s perfect for, you know, if you suddenly find yourself in a chatroom with Worf.
If you’re not liking the inscription on the keys, don’t worry.
I’ve always wondered how Paper beats Rock. So what if it covers Rock? That’s not the same as being cut or crushed. Cafepress ups the confusion but in the process has created the Game of the Year, nay, the game of the 23rd century.
Paper disproves Spock.
