Until replicators and transporters can beam the food directly into their bellies, the messy task of feeding an infant is at least made a little more retro futuristic with this $US25 Star Trek-inspired feeding set from ThinkGeek. The bib is adorned with Star Fleet Space Dock and Klingon Battlecruiser graphics, which come to life with motion-activated blinking LEDs. But the real star of the show is the removable spoon integrated into a miniature model of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701, complete with blinking LED nacelles to get your little ensign’s attention. Just make sure to wash it all by hand, otherwise a trip through the dishwasher could end up being their final frontier. [ThinkGeek]
