Rapture-proof your iPhone with a chic Pip-Boy 3000 case

This Pip-Boy 3000 iPhone case may not actually help you in a real life battle against a Deathclaw, but it can locate and call the nearest hospital if and when the fight goes down. Judging by the quality, it could also fetch a few bottle caps on eBay - assuming you can convince its creator to sell you one in the first place.

The replica Pip-Boy 3000 was constructed by Dale Chance, with Geiger counter sound effects and Pip-Boy programs supplied by the Apple App Store. Chance has crafted other items from the Fallout world including Nuka-Cola and Sunset Sarsaparilla caps and badges, an AEP7 Laser Pistol and 'That Gun'. These are all shown in detail on his Etsy shop, The Chance Emporium, where it appears he's already started selling replicas of his replicas to artsy Fallout fans.

On the page describing his newest Pip-Boy 3000 creation, he writes: “This is sure to make your time in the wastelands that much easier, and face it, no one else will look quite as suave as you would, with this on your arm.”

The man has a point. With this and a few Sarsaparilla bottle caps (guaranteed to add +1 charisma), the cosplay ladies won't stand a chance. And with the whole rapture thing on the way...

    Again with the Rapture thing... Anyways if you are gone when the real thing happnes, you wont need an iphone. If you DO stay, you will need everything and the iphone to help you out! But before it happens go and get the CHUPACABRA game which is free!

    I know it's not going to happen, but there are so many articles that seem to not understand what the rapture actually is. The Sun (Uk newspaper) even said "It's the end of the world". The rapture in biblical terms is when the "righteous" (read: smug) go to heaven whilst the rest of us remain to be judged. Then the antichrist rises and the second coming of jesus, blah blah blah. long story short, we all die, earth stays where it is.

    That's one of the finest entries I've ever seen on etsy. Maybe you can find some legitimate and awesome stuff there after all. :p Kudos to the Pip-Boy creator! Don't think I'd want to sport one, though, but it still looks awesome. :)

    It looks as though he sold one on Etsy already.

    I'm getting an iPhone the instant one of these becomes available for purchase.

  • Taterade - May 20, 2011 6:24 p.m.

    Hmmm, now I have an idea to do this with my phone, but with a different reference.

    Reasons to get an iPhone: number one.
