eyeMac Difference Engine of Wickedness: Steampunk Computing at Its Finest

by Paul Strauss

Despite all its brass and wood bits and bobs, this retro-fantastic machine hides beneath its surface a fully-functional iMac. The eyeMac Difference Engine of Wickedness is the creation of David Lee of Hatton Cross Steampunk, and it’s definitely one of the best looking steampunk computer mods I’ve seen.

At the core of the build is an old pump organ, with an iMac integrated into the top, and surrounded by an antiqued frame. The keyboard is placed neatly in the center alongside some brass vent registers which look perfectly at home on either side.

The analog voltage gauges have even been rigged up to display pertinent stats from the computer as well, though I’m not sure if that old phone or camera above the screen actually are functional or not. Though he does mention something about being able to use the phone as a gaming headset, and I’m betting that camera is a webcam.

The images you see here are of David’s own Difference Engine, but for $3,000(USD) he’s willing to build you one of your own – assuming you provide the PC or Mac, and are willing to come to Gloucester, Virginia to pick it up. It’s not exactly the kind of thing you can easily send through the mail, right?

If you’re interested in having your own custom steampunk Difference Engine built, drop over to Etsy and contact David. While you’re over there, be sure to check out his steampunk gatling gun and jetpack (aka “The Morgan Aeronautical Destroyer of Satans Arrogance.”)
