Real Pip-Boy 300 Made for NASA’s SpaceApps Challenge

It’s great when some of our favorite pieces of gear from gaming make it into the real world. Thanks to Space Apps Reno, the Pip-Boy 3000 has become a real piece of working tech.

The invaluable, wrist-mounted computer from Fallout 3 was the inspiration for Team Reno’s entry for NASA’s Space Apps 2014 Challenge. They needed to “design the wearables with current and near term technology; and/or designate who the primary users will be and how the wearable will assist them in their mission.”

The team wanted to “make a piece of popular science fiction into a reality,” which led them to create the Pip-Boy 3000 with the goal of bringing environmental sensors into an easy-to-use device, giving the wearer the tools needed to determine whether or not was safe for navigation and/or helmet removal.

The Pip-Boy 3000 made by Team Reno displays the following:

  • Relative Humidity
  • Altitude, Latitude and Longitude
  • Atmospheric Pressure
  • Ambient Temperature
  • Object Temperature Using Infrared Thermometer
  • Radiation
Check it out in the video above and dream of the day when we all have one of these things — preferably without the need for a radioactive, post-apocalyptic world.
