Well – some of them are exceptions. I wasn’t thrilled with all of them, but I do think that they’re all imaginative and interesting, even the cell phone that essentially used dried corn kernels for buttons on the front, and the cell phone that replaced the buttons with screws.
Still – the bathroom workstation (shown above) looks pretty neat, and I like the breathing apparatus that’s first in the gallery. Part of the deal is that the show is part of the Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Interactive Entertainment Experience, so all of the steampunk gadgets in the gallery pay homage to Jules Verne in some way, shape, or form.
Still – considering that a lot of people consider Verne’s perspective the origins of steampunk, it’s not surprising. Still, I’ve seen some really cool items and while not everything in this gallery blew my mind, it was all definitely fun to look at.
