Maker Faire 2009: Steampunk Laptop, Keyboards, And… Other Things

By Evan Ackerman

The only thing I don’t like about steampunk is that it tends to promise more than it delivers, like these ray guns, which don’t actually vaporize people. This steampunk laptop, on the other hand, works as advertised. It’s not powered by steam or anything, but it’s working laptop, and it looks badass, which (I think) is most of the point of steampunkizing something.

The keyboards are custom made out of vintage parts, and cost between $1200 and $1500 (or more) depending on what you want it to look like.

One more slightly NSFW object, after the jump.

This thing? Yeah, it’s a fully functional steam powered vibrator. You’d better like it hot, though, cause according to creator vniow, “when I tried to run it off of steam earlier though it got REALLY hot, you have to wear like welding gloves to hold it and even then its almost too hot to handle.” Good times.
