Fallout Cyberdeck

By Ben Everard. Posted

If things keep going the way they are, humanity might be reduced to living underground, eking out a subsistence living and waiting for the radiation on the surface to reduce to such levels as we can repopulate the earth. Let’s cross our fingers that this doesn’t happen – but if it does, this cyberdeck, built by Eric B and inspired by the video game (and now television series) Fallout.

The active electronics are housed within two layers of conductive insulation, acting as a Faraday cage in the event of
an electromagnetic pulse caused by a nuclear explosion. Battery life is an impressive 14 hours, and the device is loaded with tons of information for offline consumption – useful stuff, like medical information, Wikipedia, wikiHow and perhaps less usefully, TED Talks.

A range of software-defined radio apps gives the user the ability to communicate with satellites, track aircraft, pick up AM/FM radio and more, and computing power is provided by two Raspberry Pi 4s. It even has a radiation sensor, so you know when it’s safe to come out of Vault 33. Good luck!
