In its previous life, this gadget just used to be an iMac. Then it got another life, and it sort of went back in time, appearing with a Victorian dress up. Steampunk eyeMac was built upon an old pump organ, which lends itself very well to the Victorian visage. The iMac was integrated onto the [...]
Here’s an intricate, complex Steampunk machine that uses the power of thousands of gears, cogs and wheels to work as a corkscrew. If you’re real nice to it, it will even pour you a glass. Via RobHiggs, TheAwesomer
Artist Lindsey Bessanon acquires dried, dead insects from suppliers on ebay, collectors and entomologists. The insects are then re-humidified so they take on their proper shape. Lindsey then pokes the insect bodies with gears, cogs and metals, creating the terrific/terrifying cyborg-ish Steampunk insects. The insect taxidermy kind of thing looks pretty scary; we’d never want [...]
This armor has been created for emperors – of the post-apocalyptic era. That would be a wonderful time to strut around in badass Victorian armor and people would just fall at the emperor’s feet. In all earnestness though, the custom Steampunk armor by Ian Finch-Field really is wonderful.
We’ve seen the amazing papercraft of Phillip Valdez before, and we’re delighted to see another round. Made in his inimitable style, the Victorian Steampunk Iron Horse matches its humble paper origins to the impressive and strong metallic looks. It is the attention to detail that makes the Iron Horse all the more formidable. The gears, [...]
Checkout these Batman characters taking on a Victorian style. But why is Joker wearing a mask.
This is what Daft Punk would play if they were around in the Victorian age. Checkout the amazing Steampunk-Daft Punk costumes by Vincent M. Dantes, whom we have seen earlier with the Steampunk Boba Fett.
They died about a million years ago, and may be irrelevant to modern needs and functions, but these old phones sure had style. This particular phone has been made as a replica of the 1892 L.M. Ericsson model, in terms of looks at least. The rotary dial has given way to push buttons and the [...]
Commissioned by Sony, designer John “Wilhelm” Dunn converted a Vaio F into a cool Steampunk machine. Named eCog Mercury, the machine mod is finished in birch plywood trim, with typewriter like retro key caps, and a sprinkling of copper and gauges. It also includes non-functional gauges and steel pipes that serve the purpose of being [...]
If these were blueprints, we could one day have “real” mechanical Steampunk animals. Given the lack of text on the artist’s website, we’ll assume these intricate drawings are the work of Russian artist gvozdariki, who seems to be quite adept at animal form and the mechanical structure they could take. They do look like a [...]
We’ve seen so much of Disney characters and princesses, we find this set of Steampunkish illustrations quite refreshing. That solely due to the fact that these illustrations focus more on the villains and the princesses have been pushed into the background. There are the good guys as well, but the baddies rule this set. Steampunk [...]
Steampunk art we see today ranges from slapping on a couple of cogs to actually creating art. This would fall into the latter category. It may certainly not look like it, but this happens to be an external hard disks enclosure.
Going the way of Steampunk is a test of creativity and skill. Of course, you could just cover something in brass, cogs and gears, or you could make something as impressive as Alan Rorie‘s Nautilus inspired car. The car itself is pretty cool, but it is the aperture door that our eyes focus on. The [...]
A typewriter for a keyboard and a Steampunk-style monitor, that should be enough to make fans of the Victorian era happy. The set is custom built, with the customer getting to choose the keyboard, with the 20-inch flatpanel monitor built to match. A very interesting combo, at a very prohibitive price of $1439.

Designer Mikhail Smolyanov designed this Steampunk motorcycle by getting inspiration from racing cars of the ’20s. Named ARX-4, the concept motorcycle is powered by a V8 that powers the wheels directly by means of a drive shaft, rather than making use of the conventional chain link or belt drive.
