If you’re into the gaming scene, then you know that Fallout is a pretty popular post nuclear simulation game.
A fan of the game wanted to create a prototype of the game’s wrist mounted controller known as the Pip-Boy 3000. MyMagicPudding writes:
This is the first test of my attempt to build a working Pip-Boy 3000, complete with fully functional controls just as depicted in the game.
It consists of an HTC Desire HD as the screen and processor, and an Arduino Uno with a USB host shield running microbridge to act as an ADB host for the phone. The Arduino then sends button presses to the phone via TCP over USB.
The Pip-Boy is made from a cast shell with an HTC Desire smartphone fitted inside.
Unfortunately, with all the electronics stuffed into the shell makes it impossible for a gamer to actually wear the controller on his wrist, but it is a unique use of the Arduino.
And you think your Arduino projects are unusual?
