An avid Fallout fan has created a real-life, working Pip-boy 3000 to sit on his limp, nerdy wrist.
On;y joking about the wrist, by the way. As you can see in the demonstration video of the device (below), it’s too full of electics to have a wrist placed inside. The Pip-Boy is made from a cast shell with an HTC Desire smartphone fitted inside. An “Arduino Uno with a USB host shield running microbridge” acts as “an ADB host for the phone. The Arduino then sends button presses to the phone via TCP over USB.”
