I like Steampunk gadgets… don’t judge me! January 22, 2011

Steampunk can be described within the following sentence:

Steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them.

Now although I can say, that I don’t envision my world filled with steam-powered machines, I do really love some of the clothing designs the girls put together, but mostly I’m in love with the cogs, and gears and gadgets that dedicated Steampunkers put together. And to show you all what I’m talking about, take a look… At some of these.

 

 

From computers, to scanners, prosthetics, ear pieces, & guitars. Steampunkers do it all.

  1. Meghan Says:

    I want the laptop. and the book. the fake leg….ya I can go without that.

  2. I guess it’s all pretty neat. Maybe Oscar Wilde has poisoned my mind, but I feel like art should be kept as something to be admired and useful things should be kept as…. well…. useful things. It isn’t really practical, but I’m not denying that it looks very nice.

    • I agree with that point, but with Steampunk it’s not really an art to them. Transforming a computor into something pretty full of cogs; It’s more of a lifestyle. The people who own the things that are pictured above, are hardcore steampunks. They believe that the world still does run on steam. They even dress in new renditions of old time victorian clothing.

      For me though. I just think they look pretty cool.

      (also, everything pictured above is fully operational.)
