    I love this hugely.

  2. Oh, sweet mother of god...that's beautiful.

    The only thing that would make this cooler is if were built using something like a Commodore 64k or an Apple II. A monochrome screen would be the icing on a sweet, sweet case.

    Looks like something out of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, neat!

    And why can't I buy this mass produced?

    Clearly something is wrong with this segment of the space time continum.

    Wow. If you've got to strip out your old treadle sewing machine, this is the best way I can imagine to do it.

    This guy rocks. The other links on the left are good too, I enjoyed Fun With Fetuses and the Steampunk Bass Amp looks good too.

    On a slightly related note, I found this and thought "Hmmm, absurdly huge machines... Now who would post something like this?" So naturally you came to mind. Whittles had pretty much the exact same thought when I showed it to her, actually. Also, here's a flickr photo of the behemoth, which had to be done in composite as the thing is about 300 meters long.

    So, uh - where did you find this then? Just curious, as you never seem to post your via's. :)

      I never post "via" because it doesn't fuckin' matter. The only thing that matters is the person who created the content, not the autofellating network of people passing links around and pretending it's "journalism" or something.

        I like to attribute my sources in case someone wants to read other things from that source too.
