Star Trek TNG Bluetooth ComBadge

While out on away missions you’re gonna need a way to communicate with Star Fleet. Use this Star Trek: The Next Generation Bluetooth ComBadge from ThinkGeek to keep in touch with the bridge and your friends! It connects to your phone or device via Bluetooth® 4.2 and even plays the classic communicator chirp sound effect when you press it.

It’s the next generation of communication with a built-in microphone for hands free calling. One touch is all you’re going to need to answer and end calls, play and end audio, or even access Siri, Google Now, or Cortana. The ComBadge charges by way of micro USB cable which is included and has an auto shut off feature (when not connected to Bluetooth) after thirty minutes to preserve battery life. This officially licensed ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ item will run you $79.99 and can be purchased on ThinkGeek!

We’ve had a screen-accurate prop replica ST:TNG badge in our closet for a while. The only thing it was missing was the ability to emit the classic communicator chirp sound effect when we pressed it.

And then we found out an audio company is making a fully-functioning officially-licensed communicator badge. Behold the Star Trek TNG Bluetooth® ComBadge. It hooks up to your phone or device via Bluetooth® and has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling. Once connected, one touch answers/ends calls, plays/pauses audio, or accesses Siri, Google Now, or Cortana. And, of course, a touch plays that classic communicator sound effect. Warning: you’re going to want to keep the micro-USB charging cable handy right after you receive this, because making it chirp is well-nigh irresistible.
