Star Wars may have those sweet lightsaber weapons, but Star Trek will always have phasers, which are… kind of cool?

After a year in development, the team at OnBeep have created a device by the name of Onyx. This device closely replicates the abilities of a walkie-talkie, a push-to-talk phone, and of course - a Star Trek communicator.

According to its makers, this has been lovingly and painstaking crafted to be an accurate replica of the actual TV series prop.
