Steampunk R2-D2: Brass, Glass and Wood Droid

Steampunk R2-D2: Brass, Glass and Wood Droid
This steampunk R2-D2 has been lovingly made out of wood and brass. Although the astromech droid is now too small to fit an actor, he’s got some nice dials and knobs. It was created by the artist Amoeblablok who says that he won’t be selling off this steampunk droid on eBay, but he wants to find a home for it.

Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie

Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie

Steampunk Globe and Newfangled iPad Control Google Earth

Steampunk Globe and Newfangled iPad Control Google Earth
The steampunk “Electromagnetic Geospacial Globe and Remote View with Obligatory Goggles” doesn’t just look cool, I like what creator John Knight is trying to do – making the ol’ globe more useful. RFID tags attached to the surface of the globe allow Knight to control Google Earth on an iPad and provide a more detailed view of a chosen area.

Star Wars Goes Out on the Town, Victorian-Style
I’ve never really thought that Star Wars characters could go out in public without shooting a few stormtroopers or using a lightsaber, but these new paintings by Greg Peltz would definitely allow Chewbacca to go out in style The original idea came from Robert Mackenzie who created a cool-looking portrait of Chewbacca with a monocle.

Here’s an awesome weekend project for all you tinkerers out there: a laser monocle headpiece. Instructables member Lemonie says that it’s perfect for Star Trek fans, but anyone who doesn’t think that a laser beam on your head is cool shouldn’t be reading Instructables anyway.

Naturally, these cool pieces of handmade jewelry aren’t for everyone, but the steampunk allure that maker Ricky Wolbrom injects into her designs is kind of amazing if you are into the retro-mechanical look.

Custom Cover Steampunks Your iMac

Custom Cover Steampunks Your iMac
The steampunk aesthetic is cool from a design point of view. I can appreciate the hard work that goes into some of the steampunk creations we have seen. I don’t think the style suits my personal tastes, as I’m more of a naked gadget sort of person.

Strange and Beautiful Junk Robots

Strange and Beautiful Junk Robots
These unusual robots were featured on the oddly named Russian website Ribbon Comedy Eye Girls. For some reason, the title of the site makes me think of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Although these robots made from found objects don’t really function (other than maybe lighting up), they are intriguing.

Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is Geek Overload

Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is Geek Overload
I like converged items. I like my phone to work like a computer and a game console for example. I can also appreciate when geeks converge two of their passions into one extra geeky item. Such is the case with the steampunk Stormtrooper helmet we have here today.
