A Fully Functional Fallout Pip-Boy For Astronauts

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.
