The deadly invention

Damnation Hildebrandt!, an exquisite steampunk case mod. I also want this Victorian All-in-One PC.

Related: Steampunk is a Czech invention.

Here is the film Vynález zkázy, the DIABOLICAL INVENTION, which, if it is not the steam-powered Holy Grail of Steampunkishness, it surely ought to be. Czechoslovakian animator Karel Zeman is not a legend in the United States only because the United States is largely unaware of his work, thanks to the Iron Curtain. One more black mark against Communism.

Zeman made THE DIABOLICAL INVENTION in 1958, long before Michael Moorcock (the other candidate for the father of steampunk) wrote WARLORD OF THE AIR in 1971.

Vynález zkázy - "The Deadly Invention" (1958).
