We spotted this back in 2015 when it was showcased but wasn’t available. If you fell for the Star Trek Original Series Bluetooth Communicator back then, you will be pleased to know that stock has finally arrived at Firebox.
Yes, this is a highly accurate replica of the original 1960s Communicator from the classic sci-fi series and as such, is a collectible bit of memorabilia. But it is so much more than that. This is a working prop.
This licensed piece of kit is a fully functioning Bluetooth handset, which means you can make and receive phone calls just like a Starship Enterprise crew member. OK, it can’t ‘beam you up’, but you can chat away to your heart’s content with more mundane phone users.
It also has contactless charging, authentic SFX sounds and voices from the StarTrek universe, a high quality light foam lined hard transit case, a high quality speaker for hands free calls and playing music and an equally high quality MEMS microphone for ‘crystal clear’ call quality.
If this is the communication device of your dreams, you can get one now from Firebox, which claims to have the first worldwide stock. It retails for £119.95.
