SDCC 2015: Kirk to Engineering – Star Trek Bluetooth Communicator for your Smartphone

SDCC 2015 Wand Company Star Trek Blue Tooth Communicator

It’s commonly believed that the original Motorola Flip Phone was inspired by the Star Trek Communicator. Now, we’re coming full circle, with the Star Trek Blue Tooth Communicator accessory for your smartphone. Hardcore Trekkers have been putting together their own Bluetooth-enabled Communicators by hand for years, but with this official product, you’ll be able to flip open your own Communicator to make and answer calls from Engineering (or your mom, or anyone in the galaxy), or even use it as a portable speaker for hands-free calls or listening to your favorite William Shatner spoken word album. It wirelessly charges on its magnetic stand, and it’s loaded with Star Trek Communicator sound effects and sound bites from the show.

This official replica Bluetooth device is made by the Wand Company, the good folks who make the Star Trek Phaser remote control (available to purchase at ThinkGeek and the official Star Trek site.) While I never could convince myself to pick up the remote control, because I just don’t watch enough TV, it’ll be really tough for me to resist this Communicator – I use my smartphone a lot.

The Communicator will be officially unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con and demonstrated at the ThinkGeek booth #3351, starting tomorrow at Preview Night. I’m going to stop by to check it out. For those of you who can’t wait, you can pre-order the Star Trek Blue Tooth Communicator at the official Star Trek site, and I imagine it will be listed at ThinkGeek pretty soon.
