Lots of happenings on the steampunk front of late: the craze has made it to NPR, a new Livejournal community dedicated to finding and/or making neovictorian clothes has sprung up, and the Earthenwood Bead Studio is celebrating a "week of steam." Huzzah!

Paleofuture shows us a vision of how people in 1939 thought the men of the 21st century would dress. I rather like the Ottoman influence.

The LEGO steampunk contest may be over, but that doesn't mean the creations have stopped - for example, Admiral Merryweather's Amazing Flying Machine is ready for takeoff (and probable imminent disaster)!

Scientists have created a device which fits on your knee and uses your own kinetic energy to charge items like cell phones. I'm thinking these would look quite dashing with some brass and gear emphasis.
