Every year, San Diego Comic Con is the place to see sneak peeks of new movies, comic books and toys, as well as interesting costumes. This year, however, it will also have a new universal remote on display—and this crowd (as well as the EH crowd) is going to love it.

ThinkGeek has announced plans to debut the Star Trek: The Original Series Phaser Universal Remote Control at the show. The device is made by The Wand Company, the same people that brought you the Harry Potter-esque Magic Wand Remote a few years back.

The Phaser was created from 3D scans of the last-known hero prop from the original Star Trek series. Even more impressive is that it’s a fully functional remote with gesture controls that can tap into all of your home theater and other IR-based equipment. Other features include 10 authentic phaser firing sounds, tactile force-feedback, a customizable personal lock code, and the option to store up to 36 remote commands.

The Star Trek: The Original Series Phaser Universal Remote Control will make its debut at San Diego Comic Con, which runs from July 24-27, 2014. If you happen to be attending the show, you can get a first-hand peek at booth 3849.

Although it’s currently listed on for $149.99, the Star Trek: The Original Series Phaser Universal Remote Control won’t officially blast off until this November.
