Group creates a working Pip-Boy 3000 for NASA's SpaceApps Challenge

Most people who have played Fallout 3 loved the idea of the wearable Pip-Boy 3000 device, well, a five-member group called Team Reno have done just that – created a Pip-Boy 3000 like device. Team Reno created the device as part of NASA’s SpaceApps Challenge, which saw designers creating wearable technology for future space travelers. Team Reno’s device was capable of displaying relative humidity, altitude, latitude and longitude, atmospheric pressure, ambient temperature, object temperature, and radiation levels.

A fully functional Pip-Boy 3000 has emerged from the vault of Team Reno, a five-member group of people way, way smarter than us. The device can display relative humidity, altitude, latitude and longitude, atmospheric pressure, ambient temperature, object temperature and of course, radiation levels. It was created as part of NASA’s SpaceApps Challenge, which asked designers to create wearable technology for future space travelers. “We wanted to make a piece of popular science fiction into a reality so we chose the Pip-Boy 3000 from the game Fallout 3,” the team wrote regarding their entry. “The goal was to bring environmental sensors into an easy-to-use cuff device that could help a wearer determine if their environment is safe for navigation or helmet removal.”
