Trekkies: Your Dreams Have Come True!

Now you can control your tv with a “Star Trek: The Original Series” Phaser Universal Remote Control

The new “Star Trek” remote is based on the last remaining “hero” prop used for close-ups in the original show nearly 50 years ago, as wielded by Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner. Accurate 3D laser scans were taken of the prop to recreate the phaser, complete with a removable Type-1 mini-phaser unit on the top.

Instead of setting your phaser to stun, you can set it to store up to 36 remote control commands. Change channels, adjust the volume and open hailing frequencies by flicking your wrist or turning a dial on the top. It’s a universal remote control, so works with TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray or DVD players, iPod docks and almost anything that uses an infrared remote control. You can set a PIN code to lock the remote, and it also includes ten phaser-firing sounds to recreate your favourite episodes from the comfort of your sofa.
