Nokia Star Trek Communicator

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2010

You probably already know that Nokia had some product placement in the latest Star Trek, but Nokia also made a few never-released prototypes for the movie. The beautiful “Starfleet Communicator” above apparently one of only 14 units made by Nokia, is intended to look like the comms of the original TV series.

It’s based on the N76 and comes with an external LCD and a trio of lights on front, with the familiar brass grill. It’s a fully functioning phone that really chirps when you flip it open. How awesome is that?

If Star Trek II taught us anything, it’s that sometimes, when someone taunts you enough, you just have to whip out your communicator and scream KHHHHHAAAAANNNNN. This Wrath of Khan Replica Communicator Device was used in one of the most famous movies of all time and now you can reenact that scene anytime you want.

When you open it up, you’ll hear “KHAAAAN!!!” screaming from it with flashing lights, and phrases from Uhura, Kirk, and Spock. It works in Voice Clip Mode, Screaming Kirk Mode, and Hail/Call-Back function. When closed or opened, it chirps. Get your nerd on with this famous replica.

Make a Bluetooth Star Trek CommunicatorIt’s the perfect weekend to build your very own Bluetooth Star Trek communicator, so you can stay in touch with the folks on the Enterprise. You don’t want to get stranded on a foreign planet do you? This project will take a little skill, so just be aware that you’ll have to cut a circuit-board, drill some holes, add a serial port, a Bluetooth module, and a microcontroller.

However, when it’s done you’ll be placing and answering calls the same way James Tiberius Kirk does. If you want to give it a go hit the link to get full step-by-step instructions.

The C100S USB Speakerphone for Skype features two high-quality microphones that will give you excellent range in group conversations and eliminates pesky echoes and feedback.

It connects via USB and does double duty as a speaker if you want to listen to music. You can even pick up or hangup without using a mouse. So free your hands! They have been enslaved long enough.

Star Trek VoIP/Skype communicatorIt’s no coincidence that there’s a new Trek movie just as Dream Cheeky will be releasing a USB VoIP/Skype phone in the form of geek gold: A replica of the communicators used on the original Star Trek TV series.

The phone is compatible with XP, Vista and OS X Tiger or greater, and you’ll get speakerphone, mute and volume control functions, plus the usual Star Trek sounds. Stuff like, “Transporter room ready to beam up”. It’s due out in April, but we don’t have any pricing info yet. Should be affordable though.

Nokia 888 communicator phone
Nokia had some ambitious plans to produce a transformable cellphone that would be called the Morph, which would have used nano technology to produce flexible electronic components that could alter their own shapes to suit the users’ needs. But now the Nokia 888 communicator which was proposed and designed by Tamer Nakisci, would be the way to make it come true.

The 888 is said to feature a flexible touch screen and speech recognition system. Liquid batteries allow bending flexibility. It’s also got a completely new feature called E-motions. (electronical motions) E-motions allows you to send or receive forms to or from friends. For instance, you could send your girlfriend a heart shape that would make her cellphone turn into a heart icon. It will probably take years, but I can’t wait to see it.
