Real Life Pip-Boy 3000: Level Up Those Repair Perks

by Conner Flynn

You can customize your character in many ways in the Fallout games, but one of the most useful perks to spend your points on is the repair ability. That way you can repair and make useful things. Youtube user MyMagicPudding must have an awesome repair skill level in real life, because he made this Pip-Boy 3000 which looks amazing.


In fact he isn’t finished. His Pip-Boy is in the prototype phase right now. Just as in the game, it has fully functional controls. For the screen and processor he used an HTC Desire HD, and there’s also an Arduino Uno with a USB host shield running microbridge to act as an ADB host for the phone. The Arduino sends all of the button presses to the phone using TCP over USB.

I can’t wait to see what this thing can do once he finishes. It is an amazingly authentic reproduction. I need this on my geek wrist right now! Great job!
