Attention all tinkerers, inventors, and Steampunk engineers! Tonight’s event, hot off my stack of Steampunk press releases, is sure to delight your mind and fire up those competitive instincts. Here’s the press release below!
Announcing the launch of Steampuffin.com and Steampuffin’s 1st Annual Steampunk Form & Function Design Competition.
The competition brings together outstanding Steampunk design innovations, details the design process and promotes the role of the Steampunk designer/craftsman. Along with recycled items, all Steampunk design solutions are primarily built using authentic Victorian (1850s to early 1900s) objects, salvage items, clothing and antiques that incorporate modern technology and have specific functions for modern day, practical uses.
Sponsored by, Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation, ModVic, LLC, Steampuffin and Brute Force Studios, the selections in Steampuffin’s Annual Competition represents the best work across the world in creative Steampunk design for housing modern day technology and conveniences, as chosen by a distinguished jury of design peers. All Steampunk design projects will be exhibited at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation in Waltham MA from October 22, 2010 to May 10, 2011.
