If you are a Fallout fan and you couldn’t get your hands on new Pipboy, Than here is your chance to DIY a Pipboy yourself. Here is the tutorial that explains how to make your very own DIY Pipboy 3000 Mark IV using a Raspberry Pi and 3.5 inch PiTFT screen.

The DIY Pipboy 3000 Mark IV is powered by the Raspberry Pi mini PC and runs the ‘pypboy’ python program which has been specifically created for the Pi mini PC and features OSM for map data.

Video will explain a lot about the 3D printer case which encloses the 2200mAh Lithium Battery, 2.5W Mono Audio Amplifier, raspberry Pi, PiTFT screen and wireless module.

Adafruit explains more:

In this guide you’ll learn how to 3D print and build your own functional Pipboy 3000 using a Raspberry Pi and Adafruit 3.5″ PiTFT. The pypboy python program for the Raspberry Pi features OSM for map data which allows you to browse your terrain rendered in glorious retro green graphics. It features an audio amp + speaker with the actual score and background music from Fallout 4. An analog rotary switch lets you switch between different modes in the pypboy python program.

The 3D printed enclosure has cutouts for most of the IO ports for the Raspberry Pi, so you add your favorite peripheral like a WiFi dongle, keyboard and mouse. The 2200mAh battery can be recharged over USB and fits inside an aesthetically looking cylindrical case. Details like thesuper bright yellow LED, rotary encoder, speaker grill and faux gauges really make this look like a Pipboy 3000 Mark IV.
