Monday AMuse

"Steampunk is a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetically pleasing yet still punkish way... that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future." The Steampunk Home

the monitor on this Victorian all in one computer is designed as a stage
there is step by step instructions on how this was 'built' here

the arms of this monitor are from gas lamps
again, full instructions for this creation can be found here

even a flashdrive was rehoused...



makes your plastic model look kinda cheap, doesn't it

  3. Very interesting! There are some people out there who are really obsessive about esthetics!

  4. Well, I've never seen anything like this. These are even more ridiculous than the new cars they're building to look like old 1940s gangster-mobiles.

  6. Wel, they are a bit impractical, XUP, but I love the aesthetics - and that there are geeks out there who make them. (I'm waiting to hear Geewits' reaction when she sees them!)

    iMacs do have a certain eye candy appeal to them, persiflage, I will grant you that!

  10. Weird synchronicity. I was at the science museum today taking pictures of very early cameras with my 2009 digital camera. Now I want to make a funny picture with that. You always inspire me.

    And when is your trip?

  14. Very, very different. Art and computer technology meet to create magic.

  16. I like the anonymous boxes because that stuff was not meant to be watched. The real thing opens from the screen...
