Fallout fans that would enjoy wearing a real-life Pipboy 3000 arm mounted computer just like in the games, are sure to enjoy this new build created by hacker, maker and developer over at the Sweatmans Scientific website.
The latest Pipboy 3000 hacked design uses the 3D printer files created by dragonator and a 4D Systems 4.3 inch touch display together with a battery pack and USB breakout board. Check out the video below to learn more about the build from its hacker.
“I’m not much of a gamer. In fact, I have never played any of the Fallout games. But when a friend asked if I could build this “Arm Mounted Computer”, I was intrigued. A quick Google search revealed that this was indeed a very popular device, and several people had already built them. This is the story of my attempt.
It all started with the dragonator’s files. I simply downloaded and printed them. I used two different colors because I wanted to test each printer head, as it was a new printer. In hindsight, I would have kept it all black. Also, the friend I’m making it for will be doing the painting and touching up the finer details and minor imperfections with some type of putty.”
