Star Trek Tricorder Cassette Tape Recorder (Mego, 1976).

This would be cool to find in working order.

I remember this obscurely depressing me because of the way it highlighted the extreme contrast between the wondrous Star Trek technology and the miserable stuff we had ourselves, at the time.

I mean, I wanted a tricorder! I didn't want, you know, a tape recorder (just like I didn't want a walkie-talkie; I wanted a real communicator). And they always had to make the thing really big and heavy and least now, 40 years later, our pocket technology is more respectable. (An LCARS app for an iPhone is more like it.)
