New Star Trek Phaser I and Phaser II Universal Remote is Stunning

Star Trek Phaser Universal Remote

ThinkGeek is bringing this year’s must-have new universal remote to Comic-Con this year, though we can’t order it until November. Just in time for the holidays, imagine! If you never got around to getting the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote, maybe this is the remote you’re looking for (sorry to mix geeky references there). Or maybe you need to have Sconic Screwdriver vs Phaser battles! YES!

Set phasers to chill

Sometimes after a long week filled with landing parties and surprise Klingons, you just want to prop your boots up and watch a little mindless television. Or maybe you’re ready to catch the weekly adventures of those wacky kids onboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. What sort of mischief will Captain Kirk get into this week? Aim that phaser at the TV and…. pew pew pew!

This ST:TOS Phaser Remote lets you harmlessly blast your home entertainment system into submission. Recreated from 3D laser scans of the last known screen-used hero prop, it looks good, but it’s also a fully-functioning programmable infrared remote control. And when we say “phaser” we aren’t getting away with just giving you the Phaser I. Nope. It does include the Phaser I which functions as a standalone gesture-based universal remote control but also slots into its Phaser II pistol-grip base, which provides additional controls. You can store up to 36 programmable gestures: plenty to control all of your Earth-based entertainment equipment. The combined unit (Type I and Type II together) features a wide range of settings and beam strengths, including different Phaser firing sounds (including Phaser Overload sequence) and authentic Starship Enterprise sounds.

Just be sure you’re not wearing a red shirt while aiming this at your TV set. We’re pretty sure that voids the warranty.
