This instructable will go into great detail on how to construct and assemble the Pip-boy 3000 Mark II, allowing you to make your own. The project is 100% open source, and all files and source code will be available for download in the downloads step at the end. All parts can be obtained from places like Adafruit, Sparkfun, and eBay. The case is made with a 3D printer and laser cutter. You can buy the printed case if you don’t have a printer. Other miscellaneous hardware can be found at any hardware store.
You will have to make the custom IO board yourself. Its job is to create 3.3 volts and distribute the 5v and ground to all the parts listed above. It also takes many outputs from the display and drives the flashlight, laser and gas sensor. I will talk about the IO board and show you how to make your own in a separate step.
