Amazing Steampunk Gadgets
Simply the best in Steampunk gadgetry….
Steampunk gadgets are great, not always ergonomic or even efficient, but eye-catching and awe-inspiring nonetheless. That’s why, every so often, we like to post a list of the blogosphere’s favorite creations. Our first ‘steampunk’ article of 2010 feature’s some crazy devices from the mind-bogglingly useful, to the insanely impractical.
Created by Patrick Brawley, this steampunk toilet really is the ‘antique of the future’. Need say no more.
This steampunk device definitely needs an introduction, but aside from that, I’m not sure how much more info one needs!
Developed by engineering student Ani Niow, the ‘device’ works off compressed air, unfortunately we didn’t get a demo.
Filimon took a regular mouse, and modified transformed it into this steampunk marvel. This device actually works, and has an accompanying box that looks just as slick.
Although it doesn’t look the most comfortable, it’s exactly the kinda device that would have me starting my own steampunk collection.
Crafted by Neal Bridgens this steampunk iPod is made from copper, brass and oak. Certainly fits the bill as one of the coolest steampunk mods ever. As he say’s on his website ‘I use it and rather like it, but I’m not against offers being made…’ good job Neal.
This great little steampunk USB drive packs 2GB of storage nicely housed in copper complete with cogs, piping and brass bolts.

This little beauty actually went on sale at Qacreate for $50.
Steampunk Light Switches
These intricate brass switch plates have added a touch of steampunk to Jake von Slatt and his ‘Lady’s’ home.
Steampunk Brass Switches
To make these brass plates Jake had to solder brass parts onto recycled brass switch plates, then run a blow torch over the assembled pieces and aging them using ammonia.
No word on who made these beautiful pieces of art/jewelry. But each piece is apparently handmade from ‘specifically selected watch movements of the finest craftsmanship from Switzerland, France and across the globe.’
This cleverly dubbed ‘Mechanical Aural Communication Device’ has to be one of the most beautiful steampunk props ever made, unfortunately it doesn’t actually serve a purpose as any kinda of audio device, it just looks the part.
Created by Nicrosin from Chicago, these steampunk headphones are apparently made from ‘sculpey, rubber and various pocket watch parts’ plus they feature a suede lining for comfort. Shame they don’t work.
Another steampunk device that serves no purpose other than looking extremely cool, this R2D2 sculpture was crafted out of an old beer barrel. Creator Deviant Art’s Amoebabloke.
