Make Your House Into the Enterprise (the NCC-1701)
Are you a Star Trek geek? Do you go to conventions dressed as a character? Do you feel that everything after the original series never quite measured up? Well then, here’s the gadget for you: a motion sensitive door chime that reproduces that “swoosh” sound so familiar to fans. It even has a red alert tone if you suddenly find yourself attacked by Klingons.
The chime uses motion sensors to pick up when someone approaches the door before it sounds off. It uses six AA batteries, and is even about the same size as the original prop at 6-1/2 by 5-1/4 inches. For $29.99 it is available from ThinkGeek.
