The United States Army Is Testing Fallout PIPBoys

You can call the devices the US Army is testing out at Fort Dix in New Jersey wrist-mounted phosphorescent OLED Displays is you want. We’re calling them PIPBoys.

What the gentleman in the photo here is looking at is one of eight wrist-mounted phosphorescent OLED Displays delivered to the US Army for testing by Universal Display. The organic light-emitting diode display is mounted on thin, flexible metal foil, which in turn is mounted on a wrist-wrapping housing to create a fully functional display and communication device.

Aren’t they beautiful?

The devices were presented to the military for evaluation and testing, and were showcased at the U.S. Army’s C4ISR On-the-Move testing environment last month at Fort Dix, New Jersey, where they received positive feedback by senior leaders who make critical research, development and acquisition investment decisions.

I would wear one of these 24 hours a day. My wrist would become a pale, sweaty mass of matted hair.

That’s probably not a good thing.

It’s just another fine example of PIPBoy technology in real life. All we need now is a devastating nuclear war, and in a couple of centuries, we’ll be playing Fallout for real!
