How to make 3d printable functional Pip-Boy 3000




Christopher Hoffman made this working Pip-Boy 3000 he will wear at DragonCon 2014. If you don't know what a PipBoy is, stop reading this post.

It uses 3d printed hand bracelet and embedded smartphone with external battery as an interactive display. I like it.
It is printed in 15 pieces and the print job takes some 25 hours. Well worth it.

It looks like the source model is developed by Yvo de Haas, the same guy who developed Plan B powder 3d printer.
