    A Star Trek Phaser TV Remote
    Film  
    The Star Trek Phaser Universal Remote has been recreated using 3D laser scans of the last known screen-used pretend laser firing prop.  It's a learning remote that's able to take control of IR-controlled devices using up to 36 stored commands, although you've probably noticed a distinct lack of buttons. That's because this remote relies solely on motion gestures for its functions. Any motion you can think of—as long as they're all relatively unique—can be used to control volume, change channels, or start a recording. The phaser remote also includes authentic sound effects, vibrating force feedback, and the ability to lock out other users with a private passcode. It's expected to enter service starting sometime in November for around $150.
