This is a Bluetooth Speaker and Headphones combo, allowing users to toggle between both audio options for their smartphones. I also added a wireless charging pad for a smartphone — because the Lantern needs to recharge something, right? The wireless pad is optional, I imagine many people would be happy with just the first two items.

Last year Hyperkin unveiled their Retron 77, an Atari clone system with HDMI output. It has a similar look to their recent Retron 1 HD and Supa Retron HD systems. The company makes good-looking clone systems so I’m a big fan of theirs.

I mentioned this design in the previous post, but I decided to actually make it a thing. I said Blaster would be better as a portable record player because his tape deck enclosure was mostly covered, save for a small window. Whereas Soundwave’s glass cover was more fitting of a stationary record player.
Transformers: The Movie Soundtrack was released on Vinyl a few years ago, making it the greatest album to ever be released in this format (sorry The Wall and Rumours, your days are over). It just needs a matching record player for a vastly superior listening experience.

I’m sure millions of folks have already thought “I would prefer to say ‘Computer’ instead of Alexa or Siri!”, and I am one of those people. I’m pretty sure Apple and Amazon have felt the same way, because their personal assistant devices appear to be inspired by Star Trek.
Obviously it’s not an original idea, but I feel such a device should look like a communicator, and would feature an amber-colored LED light instead of a blue one. It would still feature the same voice as Siri or Alexa, but could also play Sound FX from Star Trek like energizing, red alert, communicator presses, and so on.
I could also see this being paired up with Bluetooth Star Trek badge communicators that people could wear or keep on their person, to interact with the assistant remotely with just a press of the badge. Would also be helpful to find other badge wearers: “Computer, where is my kid?”
