Now, calm down. It’s not as bad as you think. Last time, we took a look at the Cyberpunk genre. Since its inception, it has spawned a massive selection of often odd sub genres (stonepunk, anyone?). While I don’t intend to dissect every ‘-punk genre’ a few of them are worth taking a detour into […]
Geek Native’s Pinterest profile is used to share images from the blog grouped by themes. It’s a handy way to check out content if you don’t have time to sort through all the posts. The largest board, at the time of writing, is Fantasy Finds with over 1,750 pins followed by Sci-Fi flare with over […]
It’s getting close to Halloween and Geek Native marks the passing of time by surfacing a new mask each day. It’s a years old tradition on the site and there’s even Google+ Collection for easy browsing if want to check out yesteryears. We’ve featured steampunk asks before but not one of Imperat Shop’s creations. This […]
If the hip hop sounds familiar then that’s because Del the Funky Homosapien, the vocalist, is from the animated band Gorillaz. I’m not hip enough to have known that before today but I certainly have some Gorillaz albums in my collection. I think Harwood Gordon is excellent as the magician. Alexander Thompson wrote and directed […]
This video is from the AWE Artist Series and has Marissa Deal put together a steampunk R2-D2. This particular steampunk droid is also a fully functional kettle. AWE call it a teapot, but it’s the device that makes the water boil, not the pot that brews the tea. Steampunkers pick up on that sort of […]
Seungjin Woo is a concept artist who’s worked on Star Trek: Beyond. In fact, it’s his first feature film. However, the Vancouver based artist has oodles of experience at places like Double Negative, The Coalition Studio and Behaviour Interactive. His art is detailed and careful and yet conjures up broad strokes of imagination and wonder. […]
Geek Native last featured some Steampunker designs back in 2013 with this steampunk computer desk. There’s a lot more on show from the site, though, including these great designs. Some of these full suits look almost sci-fi steampunk. Is that a thing? Full on steampunk battle armour.
Etsy boutqiue Gregs Home from Gregory Besson sells tentacled door handles. The octopus handles are hand mae in Paris and were created when Besson needed something for his boat. I think they have something of a steampunk feel to them but that’s probably the result of the brass powder used in the resin. The nice […]
Steamwork fans and inventors should be aware of Paris-based designer Pierre Jean Tardiveau. He makes some incredible ‘scopes. We’re talking about polariscopes, callikryptoscopes and devices like the Juipter Pendulum. The image above is of a wonderful looking steampunk lamp and the videos below will show you how clever Tardiveau’s creations are. This is steampunk science.
Cute or annoying? This Furby has gone through a better transformation than just having some gears glued on it to become a steampunk Furby. Created by Morgan Gifts the Furby has had its internal mechanical parts exposed, all sorts of steamtech enhancements added and those ears could now probably pick up Radio One.
