We’ve had a big dose of Steampunk in the past few days, the latest in line being this Steampunk LCD Monitor. The 19-inch monitor is covered by a 1/8 inch thick brass frame and solid brass corners. It stands on a black lacquer base with gold inlay decor, brass feet, brass screws and brass plated brackets. It is selling for $399 at, you guessed it, Etsy.
The Steampunk USB flash drive works real hard to get the feel, and it is quite evident by the looks itself. Huge gears on the 4GB drive are clearly visible and come from a vintage clock and watch gear. The handcrafted drive is wrapped in copper. It is available for $60 at Etsy.
Steampunk gadgets always look good, and while these headphones are no exception, they don’t seem to be practical either. The $30 headphones have been transformed from the original to the antique look, but that cold, hard metal rubbing against your ears can’t be all that comfortable.
The mechanical 6 feet steampunk giraffe has been created by Andrew Chase. He has experience in creating mechanical steampunk animals, and has previously created an elephant and another giraffe. This one has shiny blue eyes that look sort of scary on the metal frame. All joints rotate and lock, and the neck can be lowered or raised.
