Working PipBoy 3000s and Wearable Tech
Working PipBoy 3000s and Wearable Tech [ Community -> Article ]
Posted by Manoil Fri 25 Apr 2014, 10:15 PM

As wearable technology sees an industry boom, NASA-contracted group "Team Reno" has created a fully-functional PipBoy 3000 that provides users with numerous features including a sensor display, communications array, and geiger counter. What is more impressive is that the device was made by 3-D printing.

The device was created by the team of Colin Loretz, Ashley Hennefer, Andrew Warren, Christopher Baker, and Ben Hammel (collectively known as “Team Reno”). The device can sense relative humidity, altitude, latitude and longitude, atmospheric pressure, ambient temperature, and radiation.

The most impressive part is that this was designed as part of a 48-hour challenge with readily available components and a housing created using a Makerbot Replicator 2. The team is planning on also adding a bluetooth heart rate monitor.
