Remember how all those "flip" mobile phones were reportedly inspired by the communicator used by Kirk, Spock and the other members of the original Star Trek TV cast? Well, there will soon be a way to make and receive smartphone calls using a exact replica of that fictional device. The Wand Company has just announced plans to release its Star Trek Bluetooth Communicator in January.
Sure, you already have an iPhone, but hey—you've got two pockets and geek-cred to maintain! Here's what the official Star Trek site has to say about this very cool accessory:
Of course, the Star Trek Bluetooth Communicator will also include a number of authentic sound effects and recorded cast lines from the original series, and it can also be used as a Bluetooth speaker for just playing music or maybe your favorite podcast. Pre-orders for the device are now being taken at the official Star Trek website for the price of $149.95.
