Ive started working on something that is somewhere in the intersection of sci-fi prop replica and useful tool:
a functional tricorder from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Introductory details and a video below.
Design goals:

Using a Playmates toy tricorder, create a reasonably good replica of the tricorders used on screen.
Make it able to collect useful measurements from the outside world
Use only non-contact sensors as a real one would
Use sensors that are not already available in my smartphone
Low cost

We are always looking to improve the listings in "Steampunk Daily". As you can imagine, its not a simple task to colate such a large listing of items. Whilst we have done our best to find title, description, artists/designers details, we are not perfect. If you have stumbled across this page, and happen to know the original URL, artists name / profile page, or any other information - please let us know below.
