Steampunk Xbox Knows What Time It is

by Alisha K.

There’s been a lot of fascinating steampunk gear turning up lately, but none quite so unique as MissLadyVenom’s work in progress at deviantART. Getting the steam-powered treatment this time is an Xbox–not the 360, but the hulking original model.

The size of the Xbox makes it a prime candidate for an elaborate, larger-than-life steampunk project like this. The mod isn’t finished yet–the Xbox has been painted, aged, and equipped with a clock–but it’s already been through a lot to achieve this brassy look.

I’d really love to see one of those giant original Xbox controllers modded along with the console, but perhaps that will come in time. Here’s the faceplate, in progress, and in another photo at deviantART, you can see where MissLadyVenom has crafted some molding to add to the mod to give the Xbox the appearance of wooden scrollwork. The finished project is apt to be quite gorgeous indeed.

    Looks like it can keep track of time better than my 360 does. Seems like every time I turn around that thing is set to November 22nd, 2005…

    >_> You just made my day when I randomly discovered this.. Now I want to go back and put the finishing touches on it and post the final version and work on the controllers. ^-^

    seriously that is the most shocking attempt at steampunk iv’e ever seen, just sticking your kitchens clock doesn’t make it steampunk. Hopefully you will burn this disgrace to both xbox and steampunk
