Steampunk Keyboard Makes Old Look New Again
March 10th, 2009
Steampunk-inspired computers and accessories are becoming popular themes for modders, and even so, this particular keyboard stands apart thanks to the sheer creativity of the approach. Also? Plaid. Who doesn’t like plaid?
Gone is the dark, brassy look of most of the steampunk mods we’ve seen; Markus’s keyboard is old, battered and faded, but still noble somehow. There’s dignity in the prim script on the keys–and the “arrows” are lovely. This looks like the kind of thing that would be an antique even in an alternate Victorian era.
Doesn’t look very ergonomic, though. Suppose the prevention of CTS isn’t a big priority in a steam-powered world.
