New Pip Boy replica is the ultimate in post-apocalyptic accessories

Hey! Remember that ludicrously expensive Fallout 4 Collector’s Edition that came with a Pip Boy replica? It disappointed legions of fans when it was released, and was really little more than a bit of painted PVC piping that you shoved your phone in to.

The people who bought that are probably kicking themselves because now there’s a better, shinier Pip boy – though it’s even more ludicrously expensive. Though the last one was essentially a phone mount that you shoved on your arm, this new Pip Boy actually has its own screen, and communicates with your phone via Bluetooth.

“Most” of the buttons, dials, and knobs are functional, switching screens on the device which can be used as an alarm clock if you want to be woken up with a daily reminder that you just spent $350 on something that doesn’t include, or even interface with Fallout 4. You can view your phone messages, take calls and look like a giant nerd with this 2-pound Pip Boy around your arm.

“With all the hours you’ve spent playing Fallout, haven’t you earned a working Pip-Boy Model 3000 Mk IV replica? A faithful reproduction of the in-game item, this Pip-Boy: Deluxe Bluetooth® Edition is not a phone case for your arm. It’s even better.

With an integrated screen and its own on-board software and hardware, this Pip-Boy pairs up with your Bluetooth phone or tablet to give you access to your phone’s ability to take and place calls, as well as its contacts, SMS messages, and audio files. Even when not paired, the Pip-Boy: Deluxe Bluetooth Edition can still be used as an alarm clock or a cosplay prop, displaying the Status, Special, and Perks screens from the game.”

It also comes with a charging dock that can be used as a speaker and is probably the ultimate cosplay accessory.

      Had to buy a cheap phone for my damn pip-boy cause my other phone did not fit.

      Used it for all of 10 minutes before I switched to my tab.

      I’ve still seen better replicas that are fan-made.

    This looks quite a bit better than that piece of garbage they tried to sell people before.

      Hey man. Some people actually bought the previous one. So there’s a market for this stuff. If there’s a market they’ll make it.

        That is true, the pity is that there will now be a few hundred thousand of the old ones in recycle bins all over the world… Instead of the hands of plastic surgeons…

    I’ve used the pip-boy app on my phone a whole 3 times in over 65 hours of play… why would I pay to get this thing and never use that either?
