63 Steampunked Inventions

From Victorian Science Projects to $3,000 Flash Drives

— December 4, 2009 — Art & Design
It seems like I’m not the only one fascinated with the Victorian era, especially when it involves steampunked inventions. With such a unique and vintage aesthetic, it’s no wonder why people are drawn to steampunk designs.

Adding a bit of intrigue and history to our lives, even if it was created a few months ago rather than a few centuries ago, steampunked inventions still hold a mysterious, mechanical aura.
