With gadgets galore being launched off the back of the new Star Trek movie, Trekkies are well and truly in their element at the moment, and no more than with this replica Communicator.

Star Trek fans will be happy with the attention to detail – it looks exactly the same as the original series Communicator and comes complete with original sound effects. Even better, it also doubles up as a fully functional VoIP phone.

With Skype compatibility, you'll be able to make free Skype to Skype calls to all your other Trekkie friends, and its built-in microphone and speaker means you can use it with IM services like MSN, AIM and iChat as well.

Simply connect it up to your computer via your USB port and flip it open, Captain Kirk style. Beam me up, Scotty.
