Pip Boy From Everything

Introduction: Pip Boy From Everything

About: I am a 16 year old with a passion for making things and inventing

this is what i did with old bits and bobs i got around the house (good comments please... i am only 15)

this comes in 2 bits...... the cuf= the bit you wear...... and the pip boy

Supplies

i used:

1. 2 small and 1 big tic tak boxes

2. a chassy of an old tank

3. old electric nobs and switches

4. a joy stick from an ps4 controler

5. correction fluid

6. an old watch

7. cable

8. other random bits and bobs

Step 1: Design

i used the pip boy from fallout 3 and 4 as my main design but i didn't take pictures of this AS i was making it (sorry) but i did take pictures of it when it was finished. the screen picture i used was from google (thanks) i put a plastic sheet on top of it to give it a screen feel. feel free to copy this. and can you give me sdvice on things like this.... thanks

Step 2: Appology

i am sorry that this is short, but my next instructable will be longer and tell you how to make it....

Step 3: What Will Happen...

As i like to tinker, i do constant mods onto it so i will attempt to add more recent pictures as soon as possible. oh... and one lucky person's advice will be added to this pip boy

Step 4: New Versions (mrk 1.8 Complete)

this is my 1.8 finished model of my pip boy... hope you like

    ... what about adding some life to your PipBoy?
    no idea about your competence in electronics, but i will presume being very basic, so:
    - not sure, but looks like somewhere close of knobs are two leds. you can make them to randomly lit, for the start. you can use some small batteries, like 2032, but you can try using a small Li-Ion accumulator, with his charging and protection board.
    - looks like electronic watches are easy to get, and inexpensive, so, take some, and try to tinker around him, to be able to use the buttons and knobs to control the watch... without killing it! :P
    - after you get some experience in electronics AND soldering, take a look on Arduino projects. some of them will show some use for a real LCD. take your time to learn, but finally, your PipBoy will be really alive! :D

    oh, and DO NOT dismantle this thing for your more evolved versions, just use another parts!
    is looking cool, really, and you will have a hard comparison between these first tries and your final PipBoy! :D

    good luck! :D

    thanks for the advice, nice idea about adding buttons onto the watch....
    do you know any places that sell these items:
    small sat nav
    old watches
    leather (cheap)
    fork clips (like the one used in this instructables)
    and lots of card
    and a cheap gieger counter (for rads meter)
