Steampunk Daily: Technology: The Communicator
This "antipodium PC" is a really creative example of the genre. It kind of looks like a ship's wheel on a voyage to Steampunkville, of course.
Deep in the antipodean wilderness one man struggled to find the reason as to why he was constantly compelled to find new ways to join old brass and steel machine parts together to create spectacularly useless mechanical devices.
Then a good friend introduced the world of steampunk to this man
Eureka he cried (appropriately) I now not only have a reason for my eccentricity but a global community to grow even more eccentric with.
Thus the journey began. But first communication methods had to be established and this would require a suitably modified communicator device. Exploration of the field revealed several amazingly modified boxed devices, but he had something more in mind.
It all began with a plough disc. This innocent round metal plate was the inspiration for a multi armed, articulated, cabled device that would look entirely at home on the workbench in the laboratory of any self respecting steampunk tinkerer. The plough disc sat idle until the most successful hunting trip uncovered the jackhammer a most beautiful item that became the hub of all things to come.
