Working Lego Pip-Boy 3000 is the ultimate Fallout 3 tribute

Over the years, we've seen the Pip-Boy 3000 get a ton of fan-made love, but while an iPod touch-cobbled model was nice, it doesn't measure up to this geektastic Lego Pip-Boy 3000si created by Simon Liu that has a working display and built-in FM radio.

For the uninitiated (like our own Evan Ackerman), the "Pip" in Pip-Boy 3000 is short for "Personal Information Processor" and acts as the the player's Heads Up Display (HUD) in the games Bethesda's Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.

Now that you're all caught up, let's go back to the Lego replica. As we already told you, it has a screen and an FM radio, but it also has lights that can be turned on with the Lego knobs on the left side of the unit. How satisfying is that?

While Liu hasn't shared details on how he built it and what's powering his Pip-Boy 3000si, the video below showing the device in action is all the proof we need to pull out our credit cards. We won't blame you if you wet your pants.
