Ever thought, de­spite the fast ad­vanc­ing na­ture of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy, that your wildest (and in this case, geeki­est) dreams aren’t be­ing met quickly enough? Well, clearly the folks at The Wand Com­pany have, but they have de­cided to do some­thing about it. “To boldly go where no man has gone be­fore” if you will. And so, with that said, we present this ab­so­lutely won­der­ful replica Star Trek TV Se­ries Phaser, which is a uni­ver­sal re­mote con­trol com­pat­i­ble with most of your high­est tech gear. This is a gift be­fit­ting the big­gest Trekkie out there and is as faith­fully de­signed as they come. Since de­but­ing at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2014, it has been a rip-roar­ing suc­cess. Set Phasers to stun­ning.

How­ever for those of you who pre­fer your ex­plo­rations to be via TARDIS as op­posed to En­ter­prise, then fear not, you are catered for too. In the Tenth Doc­tor’s Sonic Screw­driver Uni­ver­sal Re­mote Con­trol from the same glo­ri­ous com­pany. Pre­viewed at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2013, this beau­ti­fully de­signed bit of kit was another hit (shock hor­ror) and is now avail­able at se­lect re­tail­ers. Ges­ture-based and com­pat­i­ble with ev­ery­thing from your Blu-ray to your iPod, with a built in key code ac­ti­vated lock and voice guided set-up, this is so fu­tur­is­tic, even the Doc­tor him­self might be tempted to up­grade his gear and add this to his col­lec­tion!
