Check out this amazing Fallout PipBoy 3000a build that Reddit user THEMCV created! The PipBoy is a retro futuristic wrist computer from the Fallout video game universe, and this project is one of the nicest functional recreations of it that I’ve seen. The post on Reddit has more details and photos but the core of the project is a Raspberry Pi & 3.5″ TFT display mounted behind a magnifying lens made to look like a tiny CRT screen. Everything is mounted in a nicely painted and weathered plastic case, and the RasPipBoy open source PipBoy interface software completes the project. Fantastic work!
