This classic Tricorder replica accurately simulates the original prop, frequently seen in many of the television series episodes, complete with movable components, lights and sound effects taken directly from the original studio sound effects tapes.
The top portion of the Tricorder prop flips up to reveal the display screen and the control panel with three buttons that activate three different effects.
One button lights up the display. Another button activates the familiar warbling sound effect. The third button controls the rotating circular moiré display concealed behind the middle door along with data storage discs. The lower door opens to reveal a storage compartment.
Comes with a custom display case, numbered display plaque and plaque holder.
Approximate replica dimensions: 7"H x 5.2"W x 2.3"D
There are few science fiction props as widely recognized as the Tricorder from the Original Star Trek television series. Designed to look like a piece of working 23rd century hardware, the original Tricorder was actually the product of innovative 20th century design and the imagination of prop designer Wah Chang.
Because MR is a avid Star Trek fan, they wanted to create the ultimate replica of the Star Trek Tricorder. They were diligent in designing a replica that is both true to the prop as it appeared in the series and highlights the many fascinating details that were not apparent on most television screens in the 1960s. I know you'll agree that the Master Replicas Star Trek Communicator is one of the finest Trek prop replicas ever created.
