Ameralis Grafx‘ Tricorder PMP-09 is not only a replica of the famous Star Trek tricorder, it also functions as a portable media player. The geek in me just wet his pants a little. This baby is equipped with a 2.8″ TFT colored screen, 8 GB of memory, and a battery that can play 4 hours of video or 12 hours of music before recharge.
The device is compatible with AVI, MP4, MP3, WAV, JPG and BMP files. Sadly no browser, so it won’t detect lifeforms or Google. The media player comes in 6 versions, each with their own version of the LCARS interface, from Star Trek. The Starfleet model is shown in the picture above. There’s also Medical, Borg and Marine models. Forget the fact that the Borg didn’t use tricorders.
