This Star Trek TOS 1:6 Scale Captain’s Chair Lets Your Captain Kirk Action Figure Takes The Conn

Lets face it. Not every Star Trek fans, AKA Trekkies, can afford to drop $5,500 for a replica Star Trek The Original Series Captain’s Chair and going the inflatable route is far less authentic and satisfying because, inflatable. Even if you are willing to part with the princely sum or willing to compromise, those two collectible furniture are no longer on the shelf. This is precisely why there is the Star Trek TOS 1:6 Scale Captain’s Chair FX Replica, created by Quantum Mechanix.

The Cost Of These Iconic Pop Culture Structures Will Blow Your Mind

Movies don’t show everything. While motion pictures tell some story, they never detail everything like for example, whether super villains eat, or do they bathe or poop, and they certainly won’t give you a hint of what it took to build the Batcave or Hogwarts castle, and how much real world money they would cost – if they were to be built in this non-fictional world. Continue reading The Cost Of These Iconic Pop Culture Structures Will Blow Your Mind

Star Trek TNG Enterprise Bluetooth Speaker Is A Reality Now, Will Coax You To Sleep With Engine Noise Too

I can’t recall if we did feature the supposed sleep-inducing Star Trek TNG Enterprise NCC-1701-D when ThinkGeek dished it out as an April’s Fool prank. Anywho, its OK that we never did because, what once was an April’s Fool joke is now a reality. Not that, it is also a Bluetooth speaker now. So, Trekkies rejoice cos’ the Star Trek TNG Enterprise NCC-1701-D Bluetooth Speaker is a thing, fresh out of our favorite (and not affiliated) geek store, ThinkGeek.

With Star Trek BORG Cube PC, Your Assimilation With PC Will Be Complete

Fans of Star Trek will be familiar with the recurring antagonist, an alien group known as Borg. The Borg you see here is not as sinister as the alien beings who forcefully make their captives assimilate. In fact, I think it is the opposite. However, if using a computer for work and entertainment, including gaming, are viewed as sins, then The Borg Cube PC might very well be evil. But who the hell cares? Seriously, a PC in the likeness of the Borg cube? Well, I’d say shut up and take my money! There are two versions of The Borg Cube PC: a 6-inch cube (herein known as The Borg Micro Cube) designed for productivity and entertainment (you know, surfing the Internet, watching movies and whatnot) and a larger 12-inch version (known as The Borg VR Cube) rigged for gaming.

Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

Modding minivan, AKA MPV, is borderline waste of time (OK. IT IS a waste of time). I mean, seriously, what can one get out of it? Speed? With so many people in it? However, if you are thinking of turning a minivan into a BatVan, or a Goddard, a Federation Type 6 Shuttlecraft straight out of Star Trek: The Next Generation you see here, then that’s a different story. In fact, if you are hell bent of making a statement with your mundane van, those are the only two mods you should consider. Period. The Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car was from a few years ago (as far back as 2014). Continue reading Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

Take Your Smartphone Charging To Warp Speed With The Star Trek: The Next Generation Warp Core Usb Car Charger

Take your smartphone charging to warp speed with the Star Trek: The Next Generation Warp Core USB Car Charger. While this little guy here may not get your 500 dollar rundown Mazda station wagon into warp speed like it did for the USS Enterprise, it will, however, top up your USB-powered mobile gadgets with the much needed electrons swiftly. It comes with dual USB ports, each pumping out 2.1A which should be more than ample to charge two tablets simultaneously. And oh, it produces a maximum output of 4,000 terdynes per second, or maybe not.

Awesome Star Trek Enterprise Rocker Up The Realism With Federation Gray

Remember the awesome Star Trek Enterprise children’s rocking toy? Well, if the natural wood finish did not quite convince junior that he/she is at the helm of one of the best star fleet there’s in the universe (fictional one, of course), then perhaps, this latest iteration with a lot more detailing and in a fresh coat of Federation Gray should bump up the realism by a few notches. As before, each rocker is individually handcrafted entirely out of wood and boast features like propulsion units, the iconic flying saucer main hull and the sensor dish-equipped secondary hull which also happens to be prestigious commander’s throne. The starship, wait, I mean the rocker, is designed for kids as young as an infant (as long as they can sit up and grasp the handles) up to five years of age.

Star Trek Enterprise 3D Deco Lamp Puts Realistic ‘Hologram’ In Your Home

Sci-fi books and films have opened our eyes to many drool worthy future tech. Sadly, not every one of those fantasy tech becomes a reality. Hologram is one of them. The hologram here we are referring to is real projection of a 3D object in wireframe or similar, not the sticker kind of hologram you in toys, or those projected inside a glass block. Star Trek Automated Repair Station, for example, had one and now, even though consumer hologram isn’t available to you, you can have one in your room, on your bedside table too. And the object that will replicate the hologram projection look is this Disco Star Trek USS Enterprise 3D Deco Lamp.
