While we’ve already seen Microsoft, EA and Bethesda, just awhile ago Ubisoft took to the E3 stage. As usual with Ubisoft, these trailers have some pretty salty language and are definitely NSFW. The most notable titles in today’s conference were: Ghost Recon: Wildlands, South Park: The Fractured but Whole, a new Star Trek VR, and Watch Dogs 2.

Head below for more details and trailers:

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.

iceroundup-2Ice is one of the most important — yet underappreciated — components of any drink. Our Kitchen Tech guide to magical ice ball makers focused on high-end spheres for fancy beverages, so today we’re looking at some fun, affordable alternatives. Almost every ice mold in this collection sells for $10 or less, letting you easily bring some excitement to your favorite drinking glass.

For instance, check out this Death Star Silicone Tray ($10 shipped) from Japanese mold maker Kotobukiya, which creates an incredibly detailed 60mm ice version of the original Death Star from Star Wars: A New Hope. If you’re looking for something less ominous and more rebellious, there’s ThinkGeek’s Han Solo in Carbonite Ice Cube Tray ($10), which makes 7 cubes based on the frozen Solo from Empire Strikes Back — one 3.5″ block and 1.75″ block.

We have plenty of other cool (yes, cool) options below, including ice shot glasses, Star Trek insignias, diamonds, hearts, skulls, cubes, and spheres. Read on!
