The main character in Fallout 3 had this sweet forearm information device. I'd like to make one using my phone as the screen, but I don't know what I could use for the actual device surrounding the screen.

I am wondering if someone can make a good,but affordable,fallout pip-boy case for my old iPod touch 3rd gen.i know it is ancient piece of technology but i have my new one and i don't wanna seal it in a case.i would hope it looks like a perfect pip-boy 3000 from fallout 3 or fallout new Vegas because im gonna probably give it to my friend for his birthday.i will be sealing it inside but can you some how make all the functions(power button,charger port,etc.)NOTE IT HAS NO CAMERA SO YOU DON'T NEED TO ADD A CAMERA HOLE.with the home button i realize you can have the scroll thing be a button to use on top of the button.the reason im not doing it myself is because i have no idea how.

Hello. I've been coming to this website for some time now and I must say there are some very creative people on here kudos to all of you. Any way my topic is: I'm thinking of making a Fallout 3 Pip-Boy 3000-style case for my Iphone 3G (when I get one that is) and be able to wear it. I have seen a topic on here that is similar and I've seen a video that someone has already done this but it was made out of the Limited Edition clock and frankly I just can't afford that it costs roughly 90 pounds, just too much for something that I'll be taking apart any way. I was thinking of creating my own Pip-Boy out of a plastic tube, some polystyrene and an old screw case but after a talk with my father Polystyrene just crumble's so that's gone down. Then i though why not make a mold out of plasticene (modeling clay) but how do I go about that?. What is the material I need that will be sturdy enough to keep my phone safe?. Resin wont do nor will fiber glass. Can anyone tell me what is a good compensation for those or will those two work?. Yours sincerely Just Killing Time.

A friend just brought us back a lemon she picked (with permission) from a grove in a convent garden in Rome. It was very tasty, and had five pips in it.What is the best way to grow these pips on into a new bush or tree?I don't have a greenhouse, but I do have windowsills. I eventually plan for the bush / tree to end up in a large pot.(I know I could google it, but do you happen to know whether lemon trees have gender? In other words, would I need two trees to get fruit?)

I was just watching the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup (woo), and my dad turned on picture in picture so we could see what another channel was broadcasting, but as a default it started on the same channel. The weird thing was the picture in picture was a full 1-2 seconds ahead (the audio was synched correctly with the main picture). It's an HDTV connected to a cable box. This is pretty much the least important question ever, but I found it weird and wondered if anyone had any ideas.

I was thinking around the size of a pip boy screen because thats kinda the idea. 5"-7" would be the best size, and vga input or hdmi as I will likely be using the raspberry pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/) when it comes out

Question by userman2222 | last reply
Does anyone have specifications for the pip size and spacing for regulation (assuming there is such a thing) domino sets? I'd like to take a shot at making some, but neither the "intarwebs" nor the local library have provided anything in the way of concrete data. The best I've found is several web sites that would be happy to sell me a "template" and some sort of special pip-drilling bit for $49.95. I've found some download-and-print-your-own-dominoes pdf files, but I don't know if those are regulation or just someone's best guess at how they should look. I don't own a set of "factory" dominoes, so I can't just measure directly. I even searched the online patent databases, and while there are several domino-related patents, none of them have detailed measurements.

For the project I am making, I need to make sure there is absolutely no leakage from liquid between sticking 1/2inch pvc pipe into a 2 liter bottle. I need to know how this might be accomplished.
Question by flashanimator | last reply
So I had a problem choosing a pattern that I was going to decorate a notebook with. I looked up patterns and designs on Google images, but most were either all too complicated or just not appealing to me. So I decided to create my own design. I had a few guidelines for the design: 1. It had to reflect my personality somehow. 2. It can't be too complicated 3. I had to like it, of course. I looked around for inspiration on Google and Ikea, and found this design where it was a feather with stripes surrounded by lines, circles, and curves. And it hit me, a picture surrounded by different patterns. Since I'm Asian, I immediately thought of a cute panda. Then, I google searched a tutorial for a panda, drew it, and behold, a panda! After that, I thought that it needed more, so I started drawing random ovals behind it. The ovals looked too plain so I thought about adding more, with patterns! I drew a variety of patterns in the ovals/circles and the picture is my result. If you look close enough you can see my other attempted patterns on the back of the paper, including feathers and toast. I'm just random like that. Pip pip toodley doo!

Like I use makyamas free-wifi finder, and I have several wireless cards--usb: 2 from sprint, 1 from verizon, one in notebook and one external just for wifi. I want to combine them for one fat pipe and then send them thourgh my apple airport extreme for my self and neighbors; but I want to protect my internal data and such.
Long story short, I'm looking to make a vacuum forming table, and have most of the thing designed. However, I am looking to use two (maybe three) cheap vacuum pumps until I have the money to get a decent vacuum pump. I know that the pumps (4 CFM) if stuck in parallel will get me roughly 8 CFM, however, what will that do to the PSI? The pumps have a 90 PSI pull (if thats the right phasing to it) and I'm unsure what grade of pip/tubing to get for this. Thanks in advance!!

I bought myself a used blender with a spigot to make a Garbage Disposal. I was thinking, hook pipping to the blender from the top of the sink, add a pipe going out & bingo a DIY Blender / Garbage Disposal. But, the hole was too small for the stringy parts of the blended garbage & clogged. So I need help on a building plan on how to attach the blade of a blender & put in a small bucket or jug. It hast to be small to fill with sink water & blend. I need to know what to use, were to get it,( the best place is E-Bay), & how to put it together. I need a big spout, angeled to spin the water & refuse out thew the outlet pipe.

I have been asked to supply cool air to five kennels, adobe built, in a row. I am proposing to Build a funnel box around the inside unit to feed air through pipping (drainage/plumbing) to the individual units.The engineer/salesman has told me it is immpossible to do this and a much larger/expensive system will be required. Would any one care to comment on this ? I was planning to fit a small fan at the far end of the tubing to aid in the flow of air and take back pressure off the unit. As with most of the instructables I have seen here, I know this is not the "correct" way of doing the job, more of a hack but at the moment I have more time than money

Ok I will admit I haven’t really looked around the web too hard to find a solution for this but then why go to all that bother when I can give you guys the pleasure of flexing the knowledge muscles. I like a mug that is a bit of fun, I have Taz ones, Carry on movie ones, huge ones & now I have a saucy captains mug with a long row on rosy round bottoms on it. I have to use this particular mug at the moment because our new kitten 'ible loves to play on the window sill right alongside where my mug always sits while I am working on the laptop, the wide base of a captains mug is the only one in the house the kitten cannot tip over :-) The problem is that our stainless steel spoons leave unsightly grey marks on the glaze when the tea is stirred; I have tried removing them with a scourer to no avail & it now really getting on my pip :-( I know the chances are it is because of the inferior glaze on cheap mass produced ceramics but that doesn’t help me get rid of them. Any ideas folks?

Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_LED I have been keeping an eye on this for a long time and have been looking around on google every now and again . What im looking for is and instructable for OLED's that give off light , im pretty sure how to make a flexible tv screen is something we would all like to know. I am just curious if its possible to make any flexible OLED at home whether it be just giving off light or a tv screen. Please if anyone knows the full process make a step by step don't just explain the theory like in the wiki or here http://www.ehow.com/how_2246666_make-organic-led.html Here is an example of what im looking for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZfrFX36Hkc&feature;=related In the very least this could be cool for making clothes,costumes,indoor lighting,etc. In the best case scenario this would be used for a home made pip boy,laptop,cellphone,tv I have been seeing allot of fully functional concept models but no solid release dates for retail. Despite the fact its allot cheaper to make tvs with this, im sure it would be twice as expensive to buy.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Instructables 2012 Halloween Contest! With stacks of amazing entries it helps to narrow the field down a bit - that's why in this post I'm going to specifically address the Halloween Props Contest winners. As components of costumes, or pieces of larger halloween decoration, Halloween Props is a bit of a catch-all category. With 392 entries received in the Props category alone, competition was very tough and extremely close. All of the authors who submitted project to this category should be proud of their work regardless of whether or not they received a prize. The first place category winner was the Animatronic Stargate Helmet by Honus. This project had clear and effective documentation, great integration of servos and more classical mask making techniques, powerful implementation of 3D modeling and pepakura, good attention to detail in its execution, and was an accurate recreation of an actual Stargate helmet into a great real life halloween prop. The second place category winners are comprised of the Gears of War 3 - HyperHyper Realistic Digger Launcher Replica, Blood Spraying Evil Dead Chainsaw Arm, and the Fallout 3 Brotherhood of Steel Helmet. These amazing projects utilized intensive design and digital fabrication workflows, advanced costume design techniques, solid construction skills with long lasting materials, and were beautifully documented with step by step instructions. The third place winners include the TF2 Minigun, Custom Zombie Dentures, How to Make a PIP-Boy (Prototype), Portal Gun, and Warewolf Stilts. All of these were executed at an extremely high and realistic level and were a great mix of careful, professional fabrication skills and down home DIY ingenuity. As we've seen in other years, the bar is raised to a special level when it comes to Halloween and this year was no exception. All of the finalists deserve our praise for a job extremely well done. I'd like to give a special call out to the makers of the Fallout 3 Helmet, Portal Gun, Majoras Mask, Iron Man Helmet, TF2 Minigun (Sasha) and the Borderlands Bandit Thug Helmet who all translated the digital designs for their props, or at least components of their props, into physical form in new and creative ways. To all of those who participated in our Halloween Contest this year - please enter our future contests, be it for Halloween 2013, or any other challenge that we're running. All of the finalists in this category exhibited excellent fabrication skills, as well as an amazing ability to document their work and explain it to others, and therefore comprise what I would call some of the site's most prolific authors. There's always something to win on Instructables and we deeply appreciate your participation. Noah Weinstein Workshop and Outside Editor
