There’s an interesting story from some Steampunk universe in this video.  It’s certainly worth watching. It was created by Ben Lovett, a musician, composer, producer, and artist known mostly for his work in film and TV.

Finally, something I would actually buy.  Much as I love MP3 players, they’re all too damn tiny.  These MintCube MP3 players are only 2-in x 2-in x 2in; small enough to be portable, but big enough to use on my desk.  The VU meter is cool, as long as it’s actually a real dBm meter.

It’s not SteamPunk, but it should be.  What this guy did is very extremely cool, right down to the vintage “wait a minute to load” program.
