Bethesda to release a Fallout Pip Boy that pairs with your smartphone

Remember last E3, how Bethesda announced a real-life Pip-Boy? And remember how it was essentially a crummy smartphone shell? Well, this E3 Bethesda has revealed a new Pip-Boy and this one looks maybe — just maybe — like it’s the Pip-Boy Fallout fans wanted all along.

Unlike the old version, the Pip-Boy Deluxe Bluetooth Edition has "an integrated screen and its own on-board software and hardware." The gadget pairs to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, and allows wearers to take calls, view contacts, read messages, and display various Fallout related screens.

The new Pip-Boy weighs roughly two pounds, is lined with cushioned foam, and apparently "most" of the dials and knobs are functional — not just eye candy. The lovably gaudy wearable releases this November, but pre-orders are available now. On Bethesda’s story page, the Pip-Boy: Deluxe Edition is limited to a batch of 5,000 units.
