A Fully Functional Fallout Pip-Boy For Astronauts

Unlike most replicas of the Pip-Boy 3000, the indispensable gadget of Fallout 3 and New Vegas, the one designed by Ashley Hennefer and her team has an actual, working geiger counter, real-time mapping and some other pretty cool sensors, all in glorious post-apocalyptic Fallout style.

They submitted their project to a space apps challenge, pitched by NASA, so it might even be used in space in the future.

    Gunna need this soon. I hear the Great War is just around the bend. But I really would want it, it's fully functional from what that short useless video showed. Really cool with the touch screen upgrade. There is a brighter future for these people in robco, it's just under ground.

    Perhaps with some slight alterations... The (mostly) green screen is great for retro styling, but real world practical applications can do better.

    I wonder why they didn't just make it a 3D printed cuff with a slot to insert an iphone? It would be so much easier than scratch building the electronics of each unit.

      Because as a project this way is more challenging. Now he can mount it on his wall after a few cosplays and not worry to have an iphone at hand to show it off.
