Steampunk LCD


Short and sweet today – I just drove about a third of the way across the US.

[Jake]‘s been at it again. This time he re-enclosed a dell 1907FP will brass and brass colored aluminum. Just like his previous work, it’s gorgeous. Check out the close up shot of the adjustment keys.

    Nice, now all it needs is a telegraph morse mouse :P

    Indeed, I’ll be interested to see what he does with the mouse…

    Awesome, love steampunk stuff.

    Just noticed that this is the same guy who did the steampunk keyboard, among other projects. He’s really got a knack for this stuff.

    Also, love what he did with the buttons.

    Seems his image server has crashed. Only thing working on his site now are the videos.

    Wow. That’s seriously classy.

    Just needs some steampunk window decoration themes to complete the effect!

    @1,2: A steampunk mouse? Kind of like this, for instance?

    Note- this isn’t a jake von slatt production, it’s by the *other* guy called jake who makes steampunk computer hardware.

    @targit: in case you’d missed it, the telegraph dealie to the left is his RSS ticker that sounds RSS feeds in morse code :)

  9. This is *SO* freaking awesome… Too bad i don’t have a study with antique furniture… Otherwise i’d had one of those for sure…

    Maybe he should replace the keyboard with a morse code “tapper” (key) and enter all text using morse code.
    I’ve seen guys that can do morse a lot faster than i can type, so not entirely impractical :P

    Those keys to replace the buttons are great!

    I love the “old” look. I am building a computer out of wood and brass for the 1890′s look. This steampunk theme is very interesting.

    This reminds me entirely too much of Myst. It also gives me some crazy ideas.

    Just too cool for school man !

    Very nice. I think the only improvement would be to hide the keyboard cable inside old cotton-covered sheathing, perhaps cannibalised from an old telephone or obtained from a vintage wiring supplier.
