Star Trek Mark IX Science Tricorder Replica Can't Tell Chroniton from Beresium

Illustration for article titled Star Trek Mark IX Science Tricorder Replica Cant Tell Chroniton from Beresium

Forget the iPhone, real gadgetphiles carry a tricorder. You never know when some damsel in distress is going to need a lighting quick ruling on whether her Miata is made of Duranium or Tritanium. This life-altering, limited-edition diagnostic tool, complete with authentic sounds from the Voyager and DS9 series, can be yours for $349.99—although at second glance, didn't they abolish money in the Star Trek universe? Maybe this thing should be free. [Entertainment Earth]

@Clavain: Fun fact: Gates McFadden, who played Dr. Crusher on TNG, came up with the functions for the different keys because she wanted something more "authentic" than just jabbing at buttons randomly.

Personally, I think that a clever hobbyist could come up with a more "functional" (i.e. does more blinky-beepy things) than this thing, for less than $350.
