Mickey Mouse is about to get brassy and covered in cogs and wheels. Disney Design Group Artist Mike Sullivan has been busy creating a Vinylmation Steampunk Series, which supposedly, will give Disney characters a Steampunk look. Official unveiling for the Steampunk series is early next year. There will be six figures in the set, and the images of samples out now have been hand-painted for detail.
Possibility of time travel is a long standing question/ fantasy for us humans, but if you’re rich enough you could just buy a time machine, and find out the wonders of time travel yourself. If you don’t like it, simply return to yesterday and don’t buy it. The Steampunk time machine from Watts Industries’ labs runs on raw liquid ether held in the containment vessel at the bottom.
It should be quite a blast just to have the Steampunk DJ kit around. The Steampunkish speaker horns are clearly visible, the mixer itself has a Steampunk frame, and yes, there’s a whole lot of wood and brass in there. Steampunk DJ setup is the work of Lord Baron Joseph C.R. Vourteque, who hails from Chicago.
We’ll have to agree with ChipChick, this USB flash drives reminds us more of Rosie from the Jetsons, rather than making us think about Steampunk. It is called the Narrow Bridge Steampunk USB drive, as its creator was inspired by a “narrow bridge” sign to make this drive. The drive is made of hardwood with the obligatory tiny gauge and control wheels, and has a “vintage” tin box for company. This thing is expensive at $300. Also, someone should totally get working on a Steampunk Rosie.
This Steampunk spider has been created out from innards of a clock, and a sprinkling of brass and copper to go along. The spider was earlier displayed at the ‘Steampunk: Contraptions + Devices Extraordinaire’ exhibition earlier this year, and sold for $700.
Creating something like the fusion of time, the iRetrofone dock lets you combine your modern iPhone 4 with the retro deskphone plus the Victorian Steampunk look. Time travel just got easier. The iRetrofone base has been hand-sculpted by artist Scott Freeland, and is a fully-functional good looking dock that sells for $450. Well, not as good-looking as the Desk Phone dock though.

Few things say style like a customized Harley chopper done the Steampunk way. This Harley Davidson has been customized by Ferry Clot and it shines with Steampunk brilliance.
The Steampunk purse trunk has cool written all over it, and it also shows off the hardwork that went into this custom-made and hand painted little thingy. It was on sale at Etsy, but sold out a few days ago.
The Steampunk Mouse you see above, has very humble origins in the form of a simple USB mouse. The attention to detail is just amazing, the modder converted converted the mouse, added those cool steampunkish buttons, gave the USB port a matching Steampunk look, and even added a braided cord. Fantastic.

This impressive Steampunk Gameboy was created by Thretris and as is clearly visible, it is very nicely done. Nuff said.
