This Star Trek Phaser Doubles As A TV Remote

star-trek-phaser

It’s one thing to buy a novelty replica of a TV prop. It’s quite another to buy a Star Trek Phaser so faithful to the original that it was made by 3D scanning the last remaining prop from the TV series. It’s also fully licensed by CBS, and doubles as a programmable infrared remote with which you can control your TV, iPod docks and many other gadgets. And when it’s not changing channels, this Phaser plays a wide range of original sound effects from the series. It also vibrates and lights up each time it’s “fired”, and features a removable side door to reveal an illuminated dilithium crystal power cell. It’s made from a matte nickel plated die cast, and comes with a museum-quality metal stand, with hidden magnetic catch. The carrying case is made from rugged ABS plastic, printed with a blank name plate ready for you to make it your own. The only thing you might have trouble doing is vaporizing rocks and alien life forms with it, but at £119.95 (roughly $200), we’d say that’s good enough.

So There’s This: BloodRayne ArmBlade Replica

arm-blade

We can’t really think of anything useful you might want to do with the above ArmBlade, but that shouldn’t stop you from buying it. After all, if you only ever bought stuff that’s actually useful, you’d likely have a lot more money in your bank account. Measuring a healthy 17-3/8-inch long, the thing is made from one piece of hard-anodized black stainless steel. Along with the blade, you get all the other hardware needed to assemble it, including the grip and forearm strap. The best part, perhaps, is that you’ll have to pay all of $18 to own it. Which, all things considered, isn’t a whole bunch of money to spend on something not entirely useful.

Miniature Portal Gun Replica More Affordable Than Its Larger Cousin

People are clearly in love with the game Portal. Why not? It’s a great way to spend a weekend and once you’ve contorted your brain through its mountain of puzzles, you too will likely develop an affection for its various artifacts. Just this summer we told you about Portal Turret replica. And today we’re bringing news of a smaller version of the Portal Gun that came out a while ago. It’s only 1 ft. long and weighs about 1 lb. It’s got orange and blue LEDs and emits a unique sound that corresponds to each color and it works pretty much like the gun in the game, minus the portal creating abilities. Purchase-o-mania (aka Christmas) is coming, so this could make a pretty cool gift, especially considering the “handsome, full-color gift box” it comes in. $60 will tick one box from that list of yours. It’s designed and sold by ThinkGeek, so you know it’ll be great!
