When will the Tricorder be available?
The Tricorder Replica is currently in the final stages of development. Later in the year we will announce when the Tricorder will be available for pre-order. The Tricorder will be shipping to customers in Summer 2021. Pre-orders will open as a priority for fans who register their interest first.
Why are you announcing the Tricorder now if it is not shipping until next year?
Since our Bluetooth® Communicator replica was announced in 2015, we have received an enormous number of messages from fans around the world asking us to complete the Landing Party set by making a Tricorder. We know Summer 2021 seems like a long time to wait, but we wanted Star Trek fans to be able to share in our excitement as soon as we were far enough along in our product development to give us the confidence that we would be able to recreate this iconic prop with the level of sophistication it demands.
How much will it cost?
We’re aiming for a recommended retail price of $250 USD / £250 GBP. We appreciate this is expensive, and much more expensive than our Star Trek Bluetooth® Communicator and Phaser, but the Tricorder is the most complex product we’ve ever developed and, with its electronics, sensors and authentic materials, it’s a much more expensive product to make.
Where can I buy it?
The Star Trek Tricorder will be available directly from our brand new Wand Company Shop, as well as selected retailers worldwide. Register your interest to be kept updated about the Tricorder’s availability.
Of course, do let us know if there’s a particular retailer that you feel would be a good place for the Tricorder to be available from.
Is it an accurate replica?
Yes. The Tricorder Replica has been developed after years of extensive research, and meticulously designed using 3D scans of the last-remaining screen-used hero prop. Carefully chosen materials and manufacturing processes, accurately matching the prop and its original design intent, ensure that it will be the perfect companion to our highly accurate Star Trek Phaser and Bluetooth® Communicator prop replicas, at last completing the Landing Party set.
How does it work?
Our Tricorder is designed to work just like the fantasy version imagineered by The Original Series script writers in the 1960s, with more than a little help from some 21st century technology. A full-colour LCD displays information stored in the Tricorder along with dynamic data gathered by its sensors and audio recording function. More details of the functionality will be revealed later this year – register your interest on the form above to be kept updated.
What can I do with it?
Measure the environment, scan radio frequencies, record audio, impress your friends, enjoy seeing your dearest Star Trek wish come true and love the fact that you own perhaps the most sophisticated prop replica ever designed and manufactured.
What is the tune that is playing in the video?
It is the first 30 seconds of Chopin’s sublime Nocturne in E Flat Major (Op. 9 No. 2), played by James Langevin.
What planet is the Tricorder on in the video?
One of the drier regions of our home planet – Earth.
Will you be releasing more inventory of the Communicator or Phaser?
We currently have no plans to make more Star Trek Communicators or Phasers.
