Check out this amazing creation. Steampunk is a sub-genre of art meeting science fiction (in an alternate reality where machines of the day are powered by steam, everything is made to effectively harness that power). The end result is a work of mechanical beauty and, if nothing else, a tremendous conversation piece. Sadly, this is not widely available for sale, but just knowing that somewhere in the world this exists is a good thing.
