Kirk Spock intercom

Okay, we’re still pumped from seeing William Shatner this weekend (discussed here).  So let’s take a look at a few items we received from online superstore Entertainment Earth.  Entertainment Earth is featuring several items inspired by movies and TV this month, including two we’re reviewing here today.  First up is a motion-activated door bell sensor made by ThinkGeek, in the design of the wall communicator panels seen throughout the corridors of original starship Enterprise NCC-1701 from the 1960s Star Trek series.

Nicely designed and affordable at under $30, it features three authentic sounds.  Press the white button to hear the boatswain’s intercom whistle (Captain on the bridge!).  Or set the right, left, or both motion sensors to sound off when anyone passes by.  Choose either the red alert (with flashing light) or the swoosh sound of the opening door as you pass into the transporter room.  More than a cheap toy, the sensors actually work for several feet and the sound is clear and loud.  And batteries are included.

Great for your home or office, it will instantly let everyone know your affiliation with the Federation.  Check out the details and order yours here.

The chair is 32 inches wide by 27 inches long and features a cozy… erm… “officer-style” faux-suede fabric, a smart gold-embroidered delta shield insignia, and embroidered command panels and buttons on each arm.  Officer thinking!
