People have been trying to come up with a working tricorder for years, and while this latest product may not be able to analyze an ore sample or check a patient’s heartrate, it will play the latest Kraftwerk single.

Based off of the Star Trek: The Next Generation design, these personal media players have a 2.8 inch screen, come standard with 8GB, and have 6 different designs and interfaces to choose from. All are roughly based on the famous LCARS interface, which geeks have been trying to get on their phones for years.

There are a few things to be aware of about this device though, 8GB of memory is a bit limiting in this day and age, frankly. The pictures on the website are all rendering, and the price starts around $349. They’re cool, but I don’t know if they are $349 worth of cool.
