SteamPunk!



I have always been intrigued by the steampunk movement that seems to have started sometime in the 80's. Its sort of a cultish thing but it has been catching on and growing in interest.

Basically, steampunk is high tech gear driven and steam powered technology cased and embellished in old Victorian styling. It is the fantasy of "what if advanced technology were introduced to the old Victorians" and what would it look like. Antique, high tech.

Have a look at the video which discusses the latest Steampunk exhibit taking place at the Museum of the History of Science.
