One of my side interests is steampunk. As I have stated before it can also be characterized as an aesthetic movement inspired by the Victorian Era. Lo and behold I give you the Steampunk watch. It looks nice but you would not want to wear it all the time.





Steampunk Laptop!

Ok so its not a secret that I am big fan of steampunk and even clockpunk. If you are into neo-Victorian stuff or Steampunk then you are likely to agree that the coolness factor for this device if off the charts. I found this link via BoingBoing to a steampunk moded laptop and its amazing. I wish I could get one. Here is the description from the website.

This may look like a Victorian music box, but inside this intricately hand-crafted wooden case lives a Hewlett-Packard ZT1000 laptop that runs both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux. It features an elaborate display of clockworks under glass, engraved brass accents, claw feet, an antiqued copper keyboard and mouse, leather wrist pads, and customized wireless network card. The machine turns on with an antique clock-winding key by way of a custom-built ratcheting switch made from old clock parts.
