Star Trek style communicators could be a reality with CommBadge

Star Wars has been the flavor of the season, but it appears Star Trek may be making its way into the mobile industry. An IndieGoGo start up called CommBadge looks to bring a Star Trek: TNG-style communicator to your t-shirts.

Over the last few months, the big talk has been about Star Wars. From Disney buying LucasFilms to the Angry Birds Star Wars spin off, it’s been all about Star Wars. Until now, as Star Trek may be getting its moment in the sun.

There is a fun new project on IndieGoGo called CommBadge. As the name implies, it’s a communication device. That you pin on your shirt like a badge. Just like a communicator from Star Trek. Words cannot express the awesome.

So how does this Star Trek style communicator work?

If you’re a watcher and not a reader, there is a promo video at the bottom explaining things. CommBadge is a Bluetooth speaker that clips on to your shirt. You then press a button and either issue voice commands to Google Now or Siri. Star Trek support red and command gold costumes not included.

It isn’t available for the masses yet, but if you donate over at their IndieGoGo page, you can have on in your hand by next February. Is anyone looking to get one of these when they’re released?
