Steampunk maker Datamancer has just unveiled his latest, a PC called "The Archbishop" that knocked my socks off. I have one of Datamancer's steampunk keyboards at my office and it's just fantastic -- a clicky-clacky pleasure to write on.
This case was rushed and completed just in time to be seen at the huge upcoming Steampunk art show at the Hamptons Antique Galleries at 2546 Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton, NY from August 16 through August 24. It will be for sale at the show but if it doesn't find a new owner there, it will be posted on ebay probably near the beginning of September.
Also featured there will be many of my talented steampunk colleagues including Art Donovan, Jake von Slatt, Bethany Peters, Sam van Olffen, Steve Erenberg, Tatjana van Vark, Jos De Vink, I-Wei Huang ("Crab-fu"), Hunter Herrick, Eric Freitas, and Suzanne R. Forbes (who made the lovely portrait of Jake von Slatt and I at the Bay Area Maker Faire as well as a painting to benefit the EFF that featured my Steampunk Laptop and Jake's monitor in the background)

Plastic is so 2013. You don’t want to buy something only to throw it away or lose it and barely care. You like nice things and want to hang onto them. The Plazmatic lighter here is a high quality, high tech alternative to the typical cheap, plastic lighter you get at the old gas station. […]
Real engineers build things. Super cool engineers build things with their hands and fingers, like our engineering forefathers did. No idea where to even begin to do that? This step by step Arduino course is now 92% off and is going to get you up and running, from zero to hero, in no time. So […]
