Elaborate prop replicas are cool and everything, but they generally don't serve any kind of practical purpose. This Star Trek: The Original Series phaser replica is different.
The phaser was replicated from 3D laser scans of the last known screen-used hero prop, so it looks perfect, but it can also function as programmable remote control for your home entertainment system. Really! Plus, you can get it for $129.99 with free shipping while the sale at ThinkGeek lasts. That's 13% off the list price, which is the biggest discount that we've ever seen on it. Still not cheap, but check out all of these features:
