Peek at new Star Trek tech

by on Jan.08, 2009, under Movies has some images of the props to be used in the upcoming Star Trek movie – which in some ways are faithful to the originals, but others not so much. It is difficult to judge size, but Kirk’s communicator has what appears to be the basic shape but might as well be the Motorola cell phone I had a few years ago – even the logo reminds me of it. Uhura’s earpiece looks spot on. Bones’ medical tricorder, however, looks more like a haphazard flashlight with a dentist’s mirror on top, and there is some speculation that it is perhaps just the sensor part. In addition, Playmates will be producing toy versions of the communicator, tricorder, and phaser. The props are currently on display at the Lenovo booth at CES.
