This Mac is one interesting Steampunk project, and done quite faithfully to the theme. At its heart it is a 1991 Mac running OS 7.5 with a keyboard that was once a typewriter. Not just any typewriter, this piece is a 114 year old Remington made in 1897. The mouse has been built from an [...]
There’s the usual vanity flash drive, and then there’s something that really impressive like this Cryptex flash drive. The flash drive is the work of a guy going by the name of “Tarator” who initially rendered the design on AutoCAD and then fabricated the mechanical components. The result of course is this USB flash drive [...]
This isn’t full armor per se but a Steampunk mechanical piston arm that the creator made after being inspired by an episode from the TV series Castle. The piston arm was handmade using brass, stainless steel, leather, plastic, and copper. It is selling on Etsy for $1195.
This is one modern Steampunk weapon. Neil Morrison built it with a telescope, candlestick holders, brass light fittings, valves, a vintage blowtorch and a few other things. It obviously isn’t much good as a weapon, except its killer looks that would disarm anyone.
Scary spidery robot sculptures like the images above are exactly the type we never want to see. But if you can handle the scary, cold glances of these weird insect eyes, go ahead and visit Catherinette Rings store on Etsy to shop for the sculptures.

These drawings by Georges le Mercenaire show what modern characters would look like, had they been imagined and created in the Victorian age.

Imagining what things would be like if Tony Stark got down to business a century ago, Steampunk Iron Man shows off its style in steel, copper and brass. The arc reactor has been replaced by a furnace that burns coal to generate steam for the suit to function. So how does Tony manage to get [...]
Who doesn’t love a healthy, artistic dose of Steampunk goodness. A touch of Victorian gadget goodness seems to make everything look better, or we’re just suckers for cogs, gears and brass. Checkout this collection of 20 Steampunk-inspired works we’ve covered earlier, and if you still feel in need for more, here’s more Steampunk.
This brass Steampunk mouse will likely have Dr. Frankenstein clap his hands in glee. The optical mouse has a glass cylinder housing a brain with electrodes poking out of it and an oversized click-wheel to go along. Creating this Steampunk mouse, Peter Balch started with a normal optical mouse, stripped it down to the circuit [...]
Everything looks better with Victorian styling, even if it is something not quite glamorous (read: ugly) as the Thinkpad. Creator of this mod pushed in an old Thinkpad running a 1.6 GHz processor into what looks like a wooden case with Victorian styling, complete with pipes, cogs and gears and even a pressure gauge at [...]
