When will the Tricorder be available?
The Tricorder Replica is currently in the final stages of development. We were hoping to announce pre-orders this year, however, due to significant shortages of key electronics components, it is unlikely that we will be able to start full manufacture until summer 2022. As soon as we are sure of our component supply we will announce preorders. Pre-orders will first be announced to fans who register their interest.
How much will it cost?
We’re aiming for a recommended retail price of $300 USD / £300 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.
If you haven’t already, check out our blog if you want to know more about how we have developed the tricorder, get some idea of the detailed design that has gone into it, and learn about some of its exciting features.
How does it work?
Our Tricorder is designed to work just like the fantasy version imagineered by The Original Series scriptwriters 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 have been revealed in our blog, and there will be further installments where more detailed aspects of its function and features 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 Phasers. The Communicator is now available, while stocks last, exclusively from the Star Trek Shop. Links and details here.
