Inspired by Punished Props' and YourGeekFix' videos, I wanted to take a shot at making my own interactive and functional version of the Fallout 76 PipBoy kit from The Wand Company.
This will be my first foray in actually combining my interests and skills into a singular project that also happens to combine my passions: Video games, prop replica's, model building and fiddling around with electronics I know nothing about!
Here's my plan to make that goal a reality. I am not super good at soldering, so I will try to make this project as plug-and-play as possible when it comes to electronics and the like. Just to save myself from spending evenings crying behind my PC ordering new parts that I just burnt up ;).
I will try and update the Project Logs regularly so whoever is reading this little corner of hackaday.io will have their share of progression updates. It's also a good way to show off to friends and family, should they be interested in what project I have taken upon myself!
Here are some videos that inspired me to begin this journey, as I truly am starting off this project from the shoulders of giants.
