Bethesda released Fallout 4 last year to somewhat positive reviews, and those who ordered the deluxe limited edition version of the game got a neato Pip-Boy accessory. It was actually just a phone case that snapped on to your arm, but now the Deluxe Bluetooth Edition is up for pre-order. It's the closest thing you'll get to a real Pip-Boy without living through a nuclear war.

The deluxe Pip-Boy is designed to look just like the one from the game. It has its own screen and software that emulate the iconic Pip-OS software. It's a bit heavy at 2 pounds, but it's lined with foam to fit most human arms—supermutants, ghouls, and other creatures need not apply. The attention to detail is really impressive here. Most of the dials and knobs really work, there's a "cosplay" mode that displays realistic screens from the game, and there's a holotape that plugs into the top and is a real USB drive.

Oh my god, Preston. I swear if this is about another settlement that needs our help, I'm hanging up.

When paired with a phone, the Pip-Boy 3000 gains a few basic real life features. It has stereo speakers that can play audio from your phone. It can also take and place calls. SMS from your phone will show up on the Pip-Boy too. If this phone accessory appeals to you, get ready to drop a whopping $350 on it and wait until November for it to ship. This is a limited run of 5,000 units, so you'll probably have to decide soon.
