Datamancer's Steampunk Laptop

datamancerslaptop.jpg

Datamancer's latest creation: The Steampunk Laptop. It takes a clock-winding key to start... (via Brass Goggles).

It features an elaborate display of clockworks under glass, engraved brass accents, claw feet, an antiqued copper keyboard and mouse, leather wrist pads, and customized wireless network card. The machine turns on with an antique clock-winding key by way of a custom-built ratcheting switch made from old clock parts. The violin-style sound holes, or "F-holes" are functional speaker grills covered with black cloth.

Flea-readers desperate for a Datamancer original might consider this Steampunk Keyboard; a snip at $1000! Not by Datamancer but steampunk and inexplicably enticing is this necklace, these earrings and especially this necklace.

She's real purty. But I wonder what all that wood does for airflow and thermal diffusion?

Okay, that is cool.

Or possibly hot depending on the airflow and thermal diffusion situation...

That is so flea.

I'd love to see some peripherals.

Without DOS 3.3, it's a pastiche, sniff!

Cheers
