Steampunk Laptop!

Mister Nizz

Noticed in Gizmodo

As steampunk-ish as this sculpture/project looks, it actually works. There's a working display, working keyboard, and working morse code input (wtf?). The creator was inspired by both the Apple Mac (he wanted to make something completely different) and Terry Gilliam. If you look at the back, there are working USB, serial, and a VGA port for the monitor.

Crazy? Definitely. Awesome? For sure! Ergonomic? No way in hell. – Jason Chen

It freakin' WORKS.. and it plugs into more modern monitors for the folks that need such things. I think it's totally beautiful...
