Nab Your Own Pip-Boy Replica


If you've ever wanted to own your very own Pip-Boy, now's your chance.

Bethesda is currently selling the Pip-Boy: Deluxe Bluetooth Edition on its website and via ThinkGeek. The device is a replica of the Pip-Boy Model 3000 Mk IV, but comes with some useful features for those who want to carry it around town, according to the product listing.

"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," the listing says. "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."

The Pip-Boy has become an iconic part of gaming lore. It's used in the Fallout franchise as a must-have for anyone living in a post-apocalyptic world. In the game, the device has everything a person would need, including a Geiger Counter, a radio, maps, and much more. The Pip-Boy 3000 Mk IV was featured in Fallout 4, and includes support for adapters, lights, radios, and more.

Offering the device to gamers is a fun way for Bethesda, the company that developed the Fallout franchise, to help gamers connect to the title. However, the company was quick to note that customers are limited to two devices per purchase and only 5,000 units are available worldwide to customers in the US, Canada, and Australia.

In addition to its smartphone-ready features, the latest real-life Pip-Boy has fully operational knobs, dials, and buttons, and can "fit most human arms." The wearable device weighs approximately two pounds and has foam, so it should be comfortable.

"The Pip-Boy: Deluxe Bluetooth Edition comes with a genuine RobCo Industries stand that doubles as a charging base and more powerful speaker option when the Pip-Boy is in place," the product listing says. "The compartment on top opens to reveal a holotape that's a USB drive. And it all ships in a Capsule-Case-inspired tin designated for Vault 111 deployment."

The Pip Boy: Deluxe Bluetooth Edition is available for pre-order now. The $350 device will ship on Nov. 11.
