Star Trek Phaser-controlled rock light

Remember Star Trek The Enemy Within a hellbent Captain Kirk making plays for Janice Rand? Well, toy company, "The Wand Company" have come up with a phaser-controlled rock mood light. Isn't that neat? Star Trek fans will recall Hikaru Pilot's Sulu's desperate attempts to stay warm on the planet surface, so here is a glowing recreation of the rock, controlled, by a phaser... and the rest you know.




The rock faithfully recreates the scene; with the phaser blast "heating" it up to full brightness, which then gradually dims once you stop firing (it is only light that you'll get though, no heat from this rock). There's also an alternate "atmosphere mode" where the rock can gradually shift through different colours and brightness. The rock is USB chargeable, and to complete your landing party experience comes complete with a Starfleet survival blanket! What will toy makers ever think of next?


Live Long and Prosper

Did you find it on Think Geek? Because they have all sorts of really wild Star Trek stuff.

That's very cool.

I personally would call that a hugely obscure idea for a collectible. But I guess that's what geeks love...
