Fans of Fallout will tell you that the coolest bit of technology is, of course, the PipBoy. Happily, Bethesda understands this completely, and has built a real-world edition that will hit the market alongside Fallout 4 when it launches November 10, 2015.
Sure, it won’t be with every copy of the game, but if you pre-order the Fallout 4 Special Edition, you’ll get your very own device. You can slot your smartphone into the PipBoy and run a custom-built app – it’s a second-screen experience for Fallout 4 that will let you check things right on your wrist. (Of course, if you don’t have a PipBoy, you can still use your phone to do all this cool stuff.)
And while the real-world edition is obviously super-cool, your in-game PipBoy has been updated too, it’s now more fun to use – you can use holotapes which may contain information, may contain music, or may contain video games (we liked Red Menace, which looks like Donkey Kong).
