Steam Punk Laptop

Filed under Uncategorized

If you’re not familiar with steampunk, it’s the illegitimate offspring of retro-futurism, a mid-1800’s Sears catalog, The Jetsons, and This Old House.

That god awful Will Smith movie, Wild Wild West, is probably the most, er, public, of examples. Kenneth Branagh surely should have known better.

But a guy calling himself Datamancer has to have created one of the nicest examples I’ve ever seen, the steampunk laptop, complete with winding key for an off/off switch, brass lions claw feet, and a watch-gears guts under a hardwood framed glass viewing window. According to the site, the thing actually works.

This is just one picture, and it doesn’t really do it justice. Check out his site for lots more, plus some unbelievable steampunk keyboards he sells.
