I have started a new project: My goal is to create a Pip-boy 3000 Mk4 from the game Fallout 4. Why not just get one of the limited edition models? For one, they are sold out. Two, I don’t want a glorified plastic phone case. I want a Pipboy that at least has all the knobs and buttons functional.
Check out the project log on the RPF Forums to see the details on the design. Otherwise click below to see the gallery.
For those who have shown an interested in a group-buy, I have created a survey for you to fill out. I expect a run of these to be limited, so first come first serve will have better odds of getting into the group-buy. I am not out to make money on this project, only to get an good quality replica into the hands of those who want it.

Current planned features:
-Run Android (and the Fallout Companion app).
-3.5″ 640×480 capacitive touchscreen.
-WIFI and Bluetooth.
-Working Rad Gauge meter.
-Pin-Diode Gamma radiation detector (Geiger counter)
-Non-contact IR temperature sensor (Reads out on Rad Gauge)
-Simulated and real FM radio. The simulated radio will play audio from the Android, select-able via the tuner knob.
-Geared down tuner knob.
-Holotapes with unique ID tags.
-Light level sensor.
-1Ah battery (with hidden in-sleeve charger connection).
-Sensor pod/Lamp which can disconnect from the Pip-boy.
-Retractable cable for sensor pod.
