The Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 watch-face for Motorola Moto 360 Android Smartwatch upgraded with a 3D printed case: Just the right thing to survive the nuclear fallout.
Still mad that the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition has sold out? You’ll just have to take matters into your hands, or better yet – onto your wrists.
Since its first appearance in the video game Fallout 3, the Pip-Boy 3000 has become known as an essential tool for you everyday survival. Whether you check your stats, choose weapons, or change the music you are listening to, it’s your trusty companion in the wasteland.
If you own a smartwatch in real life, that‘s pretty much the same (okay, maybe not for the weapons and ammo). So why not turn your Moto 360 Android Smartwatch into a great looking Pip-Boy 3000? A Moto Pip-Boy, so to say?
Here’s everything you need to know.
Step 1: Download a Pip-Boy 3000 Watch Face for Moto 360
First, you need a Fallout themed watch-face. You’re lucky, because there are several watch faces available on the Google Play Store.
The Pip-Boy 3000 Watch Face is designed to give your Android Wear device the unmistakable look and feel of the Pip-Boy 3000. The software includes options that let you tweak and tune your watch just to your liking: Analog and digital faces, toggle-able AM/PM indicator, date display, and color schemes. In terms of software, minimum requirements are Android 4.3.
There are some alternatives. The Pip-Boy Watchface [10 in 1] , Fallout Pip Boy and Droidboy 3000 Zooper are worth checking out. Most of the software gives you a glance at your missed calls, new SMS, Mail, battery statistics, date, weather conditions, and the local time.
Step 2: 3D Print a Custom Moto 360 Pip-Boy Case
So the screen of your watch looks convincing. But the case doesn’t meet Vault-Tec’s standards yet. This can be improved with a 3D printer.
On Thingiverse you can find STL files for a 3D printed Pip-Boy 3000 for the Motorola Moto 360 Android Smartwatch. It’s not exactly the same as in the game, but it’s close enough.
Alternatively, a great option would be glow-in-the-dark filament for those late hours when the feral ghouls come out to play.
But what if you don’t own a 3D printer? You can always have your Pip-Boy printed by a professional 3D printing service. If you’d like to find the best available price, consider All3DP’s free price comparison service.
And if you don’t own a Moto 360 Android Smartwatch? Then you can refer to this article to build a proper smartphone case in the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy style.
Neither the software nor the 3D prints are endorsed by Bethesda. It’s all fan art, folks. Now go check your radioactivity meter, vault dweller!
