Giant ‘telescope’ links London, New York May 23, 2008 | Posted in One-link-ers | 3 replies This is pretty damn cool. I wanna try it.
The steampunk look just makes it that much more awesome. :D
I know I am out of being in the know but what is “steampunk”??
Stuff like Girl Genius, maybe – Wikipedia has some info. The basic idea is that computers don’t exist and steam power is the major force – pneumatic calculators, Difference Engines, etc. Wired Magazine has an online gallery of steampunk-styled items.
