What is Steampunk by the way?
Well, if you are not familiar with the term, it refers to a genre of fiction where steam power, spring gadgets and modern marvels of the 20th century are thrown back to Victorian aesthetics. Technology in a Neo-Victorian setting. The term has spread on to include not just books, but any real mashing up of technology with more classical style, where Verne-esque and Wellsian science is a reality. Some post-apocalyptic elements rise up on occation, depending on the portrayal.
The definitions across the internet vary quite a bit, but that is the general gist of it. Regardless of what your definition of steampunk, welcome to Steampunk Lab, home of all manner of inventions of a curious sort.
