Steampunk Laptop

Ok, this one isn't exactly gaming-related or anything, but it still blows me away with its sheer ingenuity. Richard "Doc" Nagy is a self-described "steampunk contraptor, technical artist, and jackass-of-all-trades" whose crazy hobby is putting an Old World facade on new technology. Nagy has modded keyboards, monitors and full desktop computers, but his crowning achievement in my opinion is the Steampunk laptop. Behold!

From the wind up key to the exquisitely detailed woodwork, Nagy's steampunk laptop is a work of art and craftsmanship. I wish there were words for me to describe the glee I feel from just viewing the pictures of this beautiful contraption.

The best part is that Nagy is now taking preorders to recreate this masterpiece for anyone who has a spare $7500 to spend on a new steampunk laptop with cutting edge specifications. If that describes you, head to Nagy's website Datamancer.net for more information.
