The Star Trek: Light-and-Sound Tricorder is a Star Trek miniature with an accompanying 2.5 × 3-inch reference book.

Produced and published by Running Press' Miniature Editions imprint, The Next Generation-era TR-560 Tricorder VI replica is battery-powered, pre-painted, pre-assembled, and made of plastic. Stickers are supplied for the application of readout labels.

When the tricorder's fold-out section is opened, a "scanning" sound plays, interior readouts light up, and the display screen is illuminated, for approximately fifteen seconds.

Fully extended, the model measures about fourteen centimeters long.
