For an overview of all Pip-Boy models, see Pip-Boy.


The Pip-Boy 1.0 was the earliest known functioning model of the electronic Personal Information Processor (PIP) manufactured by RobCo Industries in the mid-21st century before the Great War.[1]


The Pip-Boy 1.0 featured a small display screen, a 16-button keyboard, a toggle switch, multiple indicator lights, and a dial with at least three settings. The components that made up the device were attached to a rudimentary metallic frame that surrounded a forearm-length cuff. Protruding cords and the overall bulkiness of the device may have precluded the addition of a protective outer casing as is found on newer Pip-Boy models. An archived photo of technical engineers working on the Pip-Boy 1.0 in the RobCo development laboratory sheds light on the prototype stages.[Non-game 1]


The Pip-Boy 1.0 was introduced in the Fallout 4 E3 2015 showcase and in the Fallout 4 intro.
