Fallout 4 will be released two month later. Want to make something for the awesome video game? If you have a 3D printer, you may like to make a workable 3D printed PipBoy 3000 by yourself.
Mkarvonen, a skillful engineering student from Finland created the awesome PipBoy 3000 from scratch. As we can see from the images, the working replica looks like a bit slimmer than its original PipBoy 3000. No doubt, it’s more suitable to wear on your wrist either in our real world or a virtual post-apocalyptic land. Of course, the wearable also features nice detailing, but his painting skills need to improve for a more realistic weathering effect.
The maker utilized 3D printing technology to build the casing of the PipBoy 3000. About electronic components, the replica features a Raspberry Pi A+, 2.8″ TFT screen, 8GB memory card, and Paspi camera. Its realistic interface lets you check your status, skills and events, meanwhile, the integrated camera recreates V.A.T.S feature of original PipBoy 3000.
Mkarvonen spent two months on finishing the replica. Now he has posted all making steps and needed 3D files on his instructables page. BTW, if you don’t want to spend too much time on this, here is an available PipBoy 3000 replica that works with your smartphone.
