It's sort of Buck Rogers meets Star Trek, meets 20,000 legues under the sea, meets GOTH, meets Jules Vern Time Machine and hellboy. You take an ordinary thing, like a computer mouse, and retro engineer it to look like it was made back in the 1700 or 1800 and steam powered. Lots of wood, brass work etc... Really Cool. I'm starting to get into it, I'm making a ray-gun out of wood, vaccuum tubes, pipe fittings and hoses. Do a search for streampunk on the net, Lots of cool pictures.
