Steampunk Old Smokey Hi all, this is a very fast and easy weekend project. I need at least 3 hours for construction and work. Some month ago I buy a Steam-generator for ships and trains in a model making store. I couldn’t find something where I can fit it in and put it a shelf. Now I got some old brass parts from Oil lamps. Miss Betsy's Steampunk Monitor If you visit the google library in these days, the librarian will find plenty of articles and depictions of so called "Steampunk Monitors". In my imagination though, I envisioned the creation of a device that could show static but also moving pictures generated by means of computation and modulation of waves generated by my ingenious new invention.... (Any resemblance to devices used in "City of Lost Children" is purely coincidental).

Dieselpunk USB Lamp This Instructable will show you how to take a plain USB LED computer lamp, and turn it into an original Dieselpunk accessory for your Dieselpunk or Steampunk keyboard or laptop. You may be wondering: What is Dieselpunk? Dieselpunk is a lesser known offshoot of the Steampunk phenomenon. As Steampunk harkens back to the Victorian era, or the "Age of Steam," Dieselpunk pays tribute to the era loosely bookmarked by the First and Second World Wars, or the "Machine Age." For a very thorough analysis of the Steampunk and Dieselpunk movements, peruse some of the back-issues of the fine web periodical, Gatehouse Gazette. A Visit to a Steampunked Home If you dropped by my house you'd probably be disappointed. Because (with the exception of my office, which is more post-apocalytic than anything else) it's simply not very steampunk. I do have plans, but none have come to fruition. However, a couple of weeks ago I was invited by Bruce Rosenbaum to visit his home in Sharon, Massachusetts and what I found there was just stunning! Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum started ModVic (Modern Victorian) Home Restoration in June 2007 and have now moved onto steampunk Home Design. ModVic's mission is to authentically restore historic Victorian homes (1850 – 1910) to their original beauty and richness while completely modernizing the home’s systems, functional layout and conveniences for the family of today (sound familiar?).
Timepieces - Retro Thing E. Barbour writes, "Former Philips engineer Ronald Dekker is famous for his website full of unusual construction projects. He now has built a digital clock that uses Dekatron (or decatron) tubes as displays." Decatrons feature a ring of cathodes driven by a control voltage.
Steam Punk "Imagine it... The Victorian Age accelerated. Starships and missiles, fueled by coal and driven by steam. Leaving history devastated in its wake." Retro-style Speculative Fiction set in periods where steam power is king. Very often this will be in an Alternate Universe where the internal combustion engine never displaced the steam engine, and as a result all manner of cool steam-driven technologies have emerged, ranging from Airships to submarines; the plausible counterpart to Magitek, with a Hollywood ScienceHand Wave or The Spark of Genius.
The Simple Tesla Coil This is a guide on how to build a medium sized Tesla coil. I built this one from parts I had laying around, all I had to buy was magnet wire, in all I spent less than $30! For those building their first coil, I would not suggest using this a standalone source of instructions. Exceptional Exhibition Artist and designer Greg Broadmore is the creator of Dr. Grordbort's a retro-science fiction universe of rayguns, rocketships and raw male idiocy. Lead conceptual designer on the film District 9, he has also worked on King Kong, The Chronicles of Narnia and Black Sheep amongst many others in his 10 year career at New Zealand's Academy Award winning Weta Workshop. From simple beginnings, Broadmore's creations have taken on a life of their own. With the patronage of Weta Creative Director, Richard Taylor, the idea to create something more took form.
Steam, Brass and Fzz March 27, 2013 Sculpture Dear friends, Steampunk "Maison tournante aérienne" (aerial rotating house) by Albert Robida for his book Le Vingtième Siècle, a 19th-century conception of life in the 20th century Steampunk also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century. Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk. History Precursors Origin of the term Dear Locus,Enclosed is a copy of my 1979 novel Morlock Night; I'd appreciate your being so good as to route it Faren Miller, as it's a prime piece of evidence in the great debate as to who in "the Powers/Blaylock/Jeter fantasy triumvirate" was writing in the "gonzo-historical manner" first.
Steampunked craftsman Festoon Lamp Hi everybody One year ago I started my first real DIY project, and nearly at he same time I realised that I`m a Steampunker in my thoughts and doings. DIY means to me "Keep it short and simple K-I-S-S" in its best way.
