On Sunday we submitted our Pip-Boy 3000 project to the NASA Space Apps challenge. This project, which I documented on my Instagram, was in response to the “Space Wearables” challenge pitched by NASA. We made a working space-themed Pip-Boy 3000 (found in the video game Fallout, which is an awesome game). Unlike most Pip-Boy replicas, ours has some really cool working sensors (including a REAL Geiger counter!) tracking real-time data. For an overview of our project, check out our official Space Apps page. There’s a short video there, and lots of info on our build!
