ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Because of the resolution on the image above, I initially thought it was more of a ’70’s style device. We have steampunk for the Victorian period, clockpunk for the Renaissance/Enlightenment period, dieselpunk for early 20th century, and so on. May I nominate anachronistic tech from the post-war to late ’70’s aesthetic as bakelitepunk? It’d be characterized by a lot of burnt umbers and avocados.
You must have died and gone to SciFi-Heaven when you found this!
Sweet. I love steampunk stuff.
RJ (#2) – If you love steampunk, try Nitrome’s newest game, Dirk Valentine and The Fortress of Steam – http://www.nitrome.com/games/dirkvalentine/
It’s a side-scrolling platformer full of steampunky goodness, and tons of fun to boot.
