expiredThe Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home Remote does it all thanks to a sleek touchscreen design: $170 shipped (Reg. $250)

If you’re anything like me, there are six remotes in your coffee table. Not exactly an ideal situation when it’s time to change the channel or queue up a movie on your Apple TV. We’re big fans of Logitech’s Harmony Remotes, not only for their simple design but the impressive library of devices that are supported. Today only, the Ultimate Home is on sale for $169.99 shipped at Best Buy’s eBay Store or direct. That’s a savings of $80 over the regular price at other online retailers like Crutchfield.

We love this remote for its touchscreen design and the ability to control 15 home entertainment devices at once plus “unlimited” home automation services. It ships with the Harmony Hub, so you can control everything from behind closed doors via RF. Logitech’s remotes often sit atop Amazon’s best-seller list while this model has collected solid ratings, as well.

expiredYou can now buy the waterproof HTC RE camera for just $50 shipped (Reg. $200)

HTC’s RE camera hasn’t exactly been the blowout hit, and at least a few times over the last several months we’ve seen it as low as $100 brand-new. Now, you can buy the HTC RE from the company’s website for just $50 shipped, which is $150 less than its regular $200 retail price and the lowest price we’ve seen.

The HTC RE, importantly, has a waterproof build — which makes it the obvious choice for water sports and outdoors filming. The camera also sports a 146° wide angle lens, and a 16-megapixel, 1/2.3″ Sony CMOS sensor. It has just one button, made for when you’re out with friends and just want to quickly capture a moment.

HTC’s website is currently offering the device in four colors: silver, orange, blue, and green. The device is compatible with both iPhone and Android platforms, and also brings the RE Live Stream feature, which lets you stream up to 30-minutes of footage directly from the device to YouTube. It’s nearing impulse buy at this price.

It’s finally possible to take calls on your very own official Bluetooth Star Trek communicator

Get excited, Trekkies: an official Star Trek communicator is coming to market. This authentic, replica Starfleet comm not only looks the part but also functions as a Bluetooth speakerphone.

Comprised of machined aluminum and textured ABS, it features a wireless charging stand engraved with the phrase “U.S.S. Enterprise Standard Issue Communicator”. 

According to

The Wand Company, creators of the Star Trek Original Series Communicator, have created the most accurate replica ever made, designed using the first ever structured-light 3D scans taken of the Alpha Hero Prop.

This piece of Star Trek memorabilia is priced at $149.95 and is currently available for pre-sale with deliveries slated for January 2016. Those of you at San Diego Comic Con can get an early look at it by visiting ThinkGeek’s booth (#3351). 

Can’t wait until January for your Star Trek communicator? There are plenty of other re-creations for Trekkies such as this Starfleet comm phone case or this replica toy that features famous Star Trek communicator sounds.

The Star Trek communicator is isn’t The Wand Company’s first product to make a splash:

Whovians can own a universal Bluetooth remote modeled after the Tenth Doctor and Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdrivers. These highly rated Sonic Screwdrivers allow the user to control home entertainment equipment with gestures. Up to 39 motions can be programmed to function with TVs, DVD players, iPod docks, and more. And yes, it lights up and makes sounds from the Doctor Who universe.

Muggles needn’t stepfoot into Ollivander’s to get their own wand. The Kymera wand functions similarly to the Sonic Screwdrivers. Fans of Harry Potter can control Bluetooth products in their own home with their wand using 13 different infrared commands.
