Steampunk that PC

I am a big fan of the Steampunk genre, I think this is a left over from the film, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with Kirk Douglas. I was always fascinated by the Nautilus and Nemo’s styling of it, a modern vehicle but designed in Victoriana. The same could be said of H.G. Wells adaptation of The Time Machine featuring Rod Taylor. The machine in that is way beyond our own technology but the design is Victorian (yes, I know the book was written in that period but the Time Machine doesn’t have to be Victorian, as it is technologically advanced. See Christopher Priest’s version of The Space Machine, a modern novel but an old style machine). This blending of styles, the alteration of technology that is digital based into something that looks industrial appeals to me. So, I am delighted to share this link with you, you can Steampunk your own PC. Any takers? – Andrew Oldham 05/11/2009
