A Star Trek (TOS) Tricorder will be released in late June 2009 by Diamond Select Toys.

Given the technology changes since 1966, this tricorder would probably be easy to mod into the real thing.

Measuring 12 x 5 x 8 inches (30.5 x 12.7 x 20.3 cm), it could be a host for a hundred things, like a PSP, DS or even a case for my homeless Via pc2500.


Beam Me Up Scotty – A Star Trek Communicator

As I continue on the path of acquiring things I wanted 40 years ago, I bought this Star Trek: The Original Series: Communicator.

It “Features The Phrases: ‘Enterprise, this is Kirk,’ ‘Spock here Captain,’ ‘Aye Captain, Scott out,’ ‘Bridge here, Captain‘” and many more.

The moire effect works and there are 3 flashing LEDs. Pushing the button under the red LED activates the hailing function – it beeps after the door is closed. When the door is opened, Spock’s voice says, “Captain, shall I beam down an armed party?” No.
