I was watching the episode, "The Ultimate Computer" last night and noticed the "science" or "alternate" Tricorder scanner Dr. Daystrom was using. I have the Diamond Select version and I was surprised at how accurate the electronics are compared to the original prop.

Since it's basically machined completely out of aluminum, I thought it might make a fun project. I just curious if any one had made one?

I used to own the original that was used on the show a long time ago... Wish I never sold it :(

Any one have some photos? I'm curious as to how the thing was assembled.

It looks like a simple tube with two caps. Thanks. ;)
