This is the Star Trek: The Next Generation Bluetooth ComBadge. Unlike the other Bluetooth ComBadges that may be screen-accurate replicas out in the market, these are officially licensed by Star Trek and more importantly this is the only one that emits that classic “chirp” when you receive or send comms to the red shirt in your crew who’s about to meet his or her untimely demise. This bit of sci-fi goodness connects to your mobile device — smartphone, tablet, or PC — and allows you to answer calls, gives you access to Siri, Google Now, or Cortana, and Play or Pause your tunes.

The Star Trek TNG Bluetooth ComBadge is available for pre-order at ThinkGeek for $79.99 or Php 3,793 and will be available by November. Unfortunately, ThinkGeek only ships this particular product to the US and Canada, so you’re going to have to ask a friends or relatives to ship it over, or have them stuff it in their Balikbayan Box when they come home or come over for a visit.
