The Wand Company Confirms Fully-Functional #StarTrek #Tricorder
Trekkies assemble! Functioning Tricorders will be a real thing summer 2021! From StarTrek.com:
The Tricorder replica has been developed after years of extensive research, and meticulously designed using 3D scans of the last-remaining screen-used hero prop. Carefully chosen materials and manufacturing processes, accurately matching the prop and its original design intent, ensure that it will be the perfect companion to The Wand Company’s highly accurate Star Trek Phaser and Bluetooth® Communicator prop replicas, at last completing the Landing Party set.
