This steampunk themed clock designed by the famous Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli is the largest animated clock in the world. The clock was completed in December 2006 after a design period of over four years.
The enormous copper clock is 12 metres high, 18 metres wide, and has extensive animations timed to music including firing steam cannon, moving figures, and moving legs like Howls Moving Castle.
The clock was built by sculptor Shachimaru Kunio who also built the giant Laputa robot on the rooftop of the Ghibli museum. Miyazaki said that he wanted to make something that would be loved by future generations that would last beyond his animated characters.
One of the Steamworkshops older creations, this USB drive is a real classic. The tiny, repurposed glass cylinder and leftover copper wire coil remind one of a light bulb. And indeed, the glass tail flashes red when transferring data. – See more at: http://1800recycling.com/2011/05/incredible-recycling-steampunk-usb-flash-drives#sthash.OPf7umA6.dpuf
These Blunderbusses work on the well known principle of Resonant Frequency Amplification Liquefaction whereby the resonant frequency of the target is measured, amplified by the blunderbuss to the necessary strength and beamed back to the target which will thus be liquified.
They are made from real Gallic oak (Venusian worm oak was not available) and (non-resinous) brass.
The 9102 3104 is 165 cm long and weighs 12 kg and is primarily a long range weapon for small targets at 2 to 3 km.
The A7513 C9854 weighs 17 kg and is about 180 cm long and is for larger targets at closer range.
Due to their weight these blunderbusses are mainly for use on low gravity planets but may also be suspended from a balloon. When fired lights blink and the usual RFAL sounds emit from the barrels.
A fantastical genre of collector intrigue – Mullanium Steampunk Bird Sculptures.
Self-taught artist, Jim Mullan, began his artistic journey during his teen years, tinkering with old watches, toys, and scientific instruments. Combining his love of the natural world as well, Jim followed his creative urge to discover a blend of things environmental and mechanical, and found a surprising resonance between these two otherwise very different design elements.
Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin has innovated a way for old Soviet naval mines to become usable furniture. From tables, to beds and even baby carriages, the rusted mines are recycled into steampunked home furnishings.
Here is a picture of a nixie clock I build about ten years ago. As applies for most nowadays nixie clocks, this one has a microprocessor inside too. I used a 8051 without battery backed up RTC. The old Matsushita CD72 nixies are from an old desktop calculator.
