Steampunk Keyboards

Those of you who are science fictions fans know what steampunk is. Basically, it's a retro-future/alternative Victorian timeline kind of thing in which mechanical analog-stuff is taken to the lengths that are now done electronically. Guys like Jeter, Powers, Blalock, and like that, and fun stuff. I think K.W. gets the credit for coining the term, which was probably a riff on "cyberpunk."

J.D. sent me a link to a guy who makes steampunk keyboards for computers. I got another link from there to a second guy who is also making them, including a laptop you just won't believe.

I'd love it if they'd do something with my Kinesis board ...

Have a look. It's amazing what folks with talented hands can create.
