Here’s what happens when a Fallout fan uses his powers for good. Aleator777 of Instructables created this prototype PIP-Boy and it actually works. He wanted to do something a little different than the usual replicas that use iPhones so he used a 4.3″ LCD and wrote the code to make it all work.
It includes basic GPS navigation, an RFID reader and even a Geiger counter—but it’s far from complete. He hopes to build a fully functional PIP-Boy 3000 and has included a how-to in hopes that others will contribute to the project and help him realize his dream.
