Multitasking electronic chronograph-alarm-thermometer Tempar Tesla is an object of art and exists as a SINGLE copy. Assembling of the devices of the “Tempar” series is manual and goes through various stages of reassuring of quality and workability.
Last Halloween my oldest son Colin dressed up as the Doctor from Doctor Who and I cobbled together a Sonic Screwdriver for him from bits of junk I scrounged up in the garage. Upon seeing the Sonic Screwdriver my youngest son Sam decided he absolutely had to have one. Sam however declared that his screwdriver needed to work- he wanted more than just a cool looking prop.
He wanted a functional Sonic Screwdriver.
The neat thing about this project is you can easily tailor it to include all different kids of sensors to learn about the world around you. Inexpensive accelerometers, altitude sensors, barometric pressure sensors, GPS sensors, etc. are all readily available and you can make a custom Sonic Screwdriver to house whatever sensors you want.
All the copper and brass parts have either been reclaimed or purchased from locally owned hardware stores. Do-it-yourselfers take note of this tip: “The antique look of this drive is achieved by polishing but not treating it, thus letting a natural patina develop,” artist Jumpei Funaki reveals. – See more at: http://1800recycling.com/2011/05/incredible-recycling-steampunk-usb-flash-drives#sthash.OPf7umA6.dpuf
Created by the talent at Prince Armory, the same team behind that awesome fantasy Darth Vader costume from earlier in the year, has gone a little crazy with this Iron Man outfit. Tony Stark is now Leather Man.
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.
