No power ring, but lots of steam-powered gadgets to take on the bad […]

Steampunk goes green… Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots.

Here’s the 1912 edition of the delightfully steampunkish Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots – it’s actually a Kickstarter project, but given it’s only a few hundred dollars away from its target amount, this splendid-looking book will probably be winging its way to us very soon. Its creator Barry McWilliams has imagined a world […]

Xbox 360 steampunk game control.

Come on, admit it, who hasn’t wanted an Xbox 360 steampunk game control at some time or another? We certainly are guilty. It makes all those X-box games so more refined when you are sitting down and playing them in one’s gamepunk dressing gown or tweeds, what? Luckily, there’s a chap called Devlin over at […]
