Even in the imagined future phones, tools, lights and etc...were separate devices.  Nimoy and other actors and TV series were certainly partially responsible for the technology we talk about here on a daily basis.

The Motorola Star Tac release in 1996 was inspired some engineers say by the TV show and NASA. So beam me up!

Wonder if Big Bang Theory will have some type of mention or tribute to Mr. Nimoy.

LOL.   My ex husband had the Star tac phone, but we always called it the Star Trek phone, because of my fondness for all things Trek.

Deb Sheldon probably will. They may make a whole episode with Easter eggs.

I Loved the episode where Penny gave Sheldon a napkin that Leonard Nimoy signed and wiped his face on.
