Steampunk is a sub-genre of fantasy and speculative fiction set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used. This post showcases creative gadgets and designs styled in a steampunk fashion. Steampunk PS3
Tom Hardwidge’s Arthrobots are robotic insects — steampunk creations made from upcycled gears, nuts, bolts… and bullets! All images courtesy of Tom Hardwidge . English artist Tom Hardwidge has an unusual specialty: creating steampunk insects from old, inactive ammunition and pieces of clockwork. Each piece is so delicately and masterfully crafted that it is sometimes hard to even imagine what the recycled components might once have been, or to decipher where one part ends and where the next begins.
The Difference Engine is an alternate history novel by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling . It posits a Victorian Britain in which great technological and social change has occurred after entrepreneurial inventor Charles Babbage succeeded in his ambition to build a mechanical computer (actually his analytical engine rather than the difference engine ). The novel was nominated for the British Science Fiction Award in 1990, the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1991, and both the John W. Campbell Memorial Award and the Prix Aurora Award in 1992.

Memento mori -- it means "Remember thy death." Like them or not, memento mori, ossuaries, and other remembrances of mortality seem to have found a niche in the steampunk world. I must admit that I do not care for the more gruesome pieces out there (I have no desire to display someone's deceased pet in my living room, thanks!). But since I understand and sometimes even share the human desire to remember and honor the lives of those who have exited this humble plane, I have decided to address this subject briefly to give you a glimpse of what it is all about. (There are many other pages on the internet to tell you about the large and elaborate ossuaries which have been created around the world, so I shall keep this post within the scope of jewelry and other small items.)

The inexorable march of technology has rendered my 4:3 aspect ratio 19" LCD mod and my pump-less water cooled PC obsolete, so when I saw at 24" wide screen monitor on sale for $299.00 I grabbed it with the intent on making a Steampunk All-in-One PC. The first step was to strip down the monitor and trim it into a nice clean and even rectangle. I taped some paper over the face to protect it from scratches and removed the base and back before cutting it to the desired height on my table saw. Note: turn the volume down, it came over much louder on the video then it actually was! I then fabricated an aluminum plate to support the monitor, motherboard and disk drives. The base was made from these nice knick-knack shelves I found at our town dump.
I had a few tools, a nice basement to work in and being kind of a packrat should help too. Not to forget a good friend with a full equipped workshop who would help me if everything else would fail. Unfortunately I didn't have any old mice laying around so I ordered two cheap ones ($5) from the Internet just in case I ruined one..... Tools used: My beloved Craftsman mini drill with all kinds of attachments Set of screwdrivers Set of sandpaper 120 - 600 Hand-me-down drill press Vise Soldering iron Assorted pliers (needle nose almost a must) Metal files Hack and coping saw Propane torch
