Itr seems like every week now somebody is doing some crazy steampunk device, hack, or mod and getting a flash mob’s flood of attention as a result. This week starts off with Datamancer: Prestidigital Datamancery & Paraphrenalic Technofetishism’s Opti-Transcripticon, a.k.a. Rich Nagy’s scanner mod. He took a flatbed scanner and dressed it as a nifty-looking leatherbound book.
If you haven’t seen Datamancer’s site before, check out his other amazing pieces, such as the steampunk bass amp and his positively evil-looking ’64 Caddy and ’56 Ford pick-up. I just wish he’d finish the damn things.
