Take a gander at the Levi's Station to Station 'Makers Tools' project and you'll discover that old technology has definitely not been left behind. This riveting initiative is responsible for bringing four steampunk-style vintage devices into the present day by outfitting them with cutting-edge hardware and software add-ons.
Believe it or not, the 1901 Underwood No. 5 typewriter has been overhauled so that it now allows you to post 140 characters directly to Twitter. The 1953 Bolex B8 video camera and the 1939 Graflex camera have been repaired and updated so that the images they capture can be uploaded straight to instagram. Play a little tune on the 1953 Gibson E-125 guitar and you'll be able to share your music on SoundCloud. The impressive work on Levi's Station to Station was done by Fake Love, AKQA, Stephen Hadinger, Mark Kleback and Matthew Epler.
