It’s no secret to anyone who has read this blog for any length of time that I love computers and the internet. Steampunk wouldn’t be the vibrant and well connected community that it is without it, so computers and their accessories are, as a result, some of my favorite modifications to feature here.
Steampunk modified computers are hardly inexpensive, however. The skills required to build and modify a computer are not common knowledge, and messing up with something like computer become a very expensive and unproductive hobby.
There is a new listing on Etsy that features a relatively inexpensive computer modified in the Steampunk aesthetic that has attracted my attention. It’s super shiny:
Created by John Dunn, The Timekeeper computer costs 1,099 USD (plus shipping) and is really quite impressive. Though I’m not at the point in my life where a desktop would fulfill all of my computing needs, this is certainly something I will keep on the radar if that day comes.
You can buy The Timekeeper here on Etsy.
