Steampunk keyboard

Steampunk is a genre of speculative fiction which mixes steam engine technology with science fiction. A very (in)famous example of this style is the hollywood movie Wild Wild West. The style is still very popular, and some people spend their free time creating working steampunk gadgets.

This keyboard is one specimen of modern technology with a steampunk look. It is based on an IBM Model M “Clicky” keyboard, manufactured in 1989. The linked site has many details on the production of this cool keyboard modification. There’s also a movie to prove that it is actually a working model.

Too bad that you can’t buy those things in a shop…
