Steampunks gather for Great Exhibition. Ian Crichton, aka inventor Herr Doktor, takes us around the Steampunk party for period 'scientists' The Great Exhibition of 2010 was held at London's La Scala club - though on a smaller scale than the 19th Century original.

Steampunks gather for Great Exhibition

This one was a party for steampunks where they could come together to show off their creations and costumes. Steampunk has rapidly grown as a sub-culture among makers, hackers and crafters the world over. It takes the Victorian era as its inspiration, but imagines how it might have been had technology been more advanced during the days of Empire. "It's a highly literate art," said Tobias Slater of White Mischief, which organised the night. For him, steampunk is all about "raiding the garret of the past to make something new".

Victorian Steampunk Wedding

Steampunk Games & Game Art Wednesday, July 21, 2010 13:27 For today’s entry, with Steampunk week taking off and providing mechanical and steampowered inspiration to anyone who finds themselves here, we will be looking at something a bit different.

Steampunk is becoming more and more popular, but it’s nothing new. We’ll be taking a look at some steampunk inspired computer games from the late 80′s to present day! (And even some steampunk takes on classics!). Final Fantasy Series Torchlight. It's Time to Rethink Steampunk. I read an interview a few years back with SF writer Barry Malzberg (whose Breakfast in the Ruins and Galaxies are essential reading for anyone who wants to be a professional SF writer), and he hit the nail on the head when he described steampunk as "decadent" — basically stuff for people who liked genre ornamentation but were completely unserious about the speculative aspects of science fiction.

It's Time to Rethink Steampunk

Yes, having a young Queen Elizabeth fighting Octopus Men From The Telluric Realms in a steam-powered exoskeleton is a lot of fun, but it doesn't really mean anything — it's incoherent as alternative history, it has zero speculative value, nobody would ever have the wherewithal to design and build those things, etc. Weta Workshop, Weta Limited and the Weta Cave.

Ten Incredible Steampunk Guitars

There’s nothing wrong with a regular guitar — and electric guitars are of course arguably the coolest of modern instruments — but after seeing the creations we've collected here, you might look at the old six-stringer you have lying around and suddenly think it's a bit boring. Customizing — or in this case, steampunking — your guitar will add so much to its esthetic potential.

See, apart from the fact that it will increase its weight, with all the recycled nuts, bolts, screws and nifty gadgets like valves, clocks and more added to it, your guitar will become a true one-of-a-kind.

The result of Alan’s patient help was that my welding improved immensely, and he humoured my ambitions when I said I wanted to make a sculpture of a bird in the afternoon. Well, here it is. And, yes Alan, a tall bike is definitely on my to-do list now. Cheers, Fzz January 20, 2013 Snowmobile, Mark 2. SteamPunk Magazine. IEEE Spectrum: Technology, Engineering, and Science News.

Victorian Organ Command Desk & Steampunk Home Tour

During that visit Bruce showed me a partially finished project that I decided really needed a story of it's own when it was completed This is the "Victorian Organ Command Desk" that Bruce commissioned. It's made from bits and pieces of Victorian detritus that Bruce had collected including the carcass of a 19th century pump organ. All of the major components are in fact authentic Victorian antiques, period reproductions, or salvaged items. You'll note the organ pipes mounted on the wall behind the console. It took 6 months to build using four different crafts persons to design the desk, restore and modify the antiques, and install the computer systems. The gorgeous clock face on the 'dashboard' is flanked by 6 LCD digital picture frame displays that featured rotating images of Bruce's friends and family.

A metallic, rhythmic noise begins to drown out the normal sounds of the evening. An army of copper clockwork automatons comes marching out of the darkness.
