Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Our old friend Jake von Slatt – the proprietor of The Steampunk Workshop – has been at it again.
Do you recall when Jake took a modern keyboard, removed all of the plastic and keys, and then added a leather front, antique typewriter keys, and brass base? (Click Here to see the full article.)
Similarly, do you renember when Jake took a 4:3 aspect ratio 19" LCD, removed the plastic, added a brass surround, and mounted it on a faux-marble pedestal like a lady's vanity mirror? (Click Here to see the full article.) The result was a beauty to behold that wouldn't have looked out of place in a Victorian setting.
And who could forget Jake's water-cooled CPU project, in which he cut a 48" section of Slant/Fin baseboard heater into three equal length pieces of a little over a foot each and then connected them together with copper pipe.
Although it isn't apparent in this picture, this construction boasts two inlets and two outlets – one set is for the CPU water block while the other is for the power supply unit (PSU) water jackets. Speaking of which, below we see the cooling system on the power supply side of the chassis. (Click Here to see the full article.)
Personally, if I had created something like this, I would be a very happy camper, but Jake is always ready to tackle some new project or another. For example, he just emailed me to tell me about his new Victorian All-In-One Computer (Click Here to see the full article.)
As always I am "blown away" by Jake's creativity. This looks absolutely AMAZING! I want one of these SO MUCH...
