Steampunk External Hard Drive Enclosure is Big, Brassy and Expensive

by Conner Flynn

Most of us probably don’t have the room on our desks for this big steampunk hard drive enclosure, but maybe one or two of us have created a large scale steampunk submarine. In which case, this would look great in the Captain’s quarters.

This beautiful overkill of an enclosure was created by Etsy seller Will Rockwell. It features a drivewheel and shaft, a service light, and even generates smoke as it works.

If you need extra RAM, simply pull the brass SURGE lever for a burst of overdrive, as a dense puff of smoke belches from the brass stack.

That sentence alone makes me want to buy it. It’s covered with walnut veneer and brass edging, with controls everywhere. The blinking service light rises like a periscope, as the drive wheel turns. Just insert your hard drive into the hinged door on the rear where you will find power and connection cables. It will hold any size drive up to a LaCie Big Drive. At least you get plenty of Steampunk for your $1,200(USD) purchase.
