Jake Von Slatt makes some amazing Steampunk objects, and this is the newest floating around the tubes.

What is really amazing is how he can take found objects, stuff from the home store, paint, sweat and imagination and turn it into something beautiful and operational.

Tip of the bowler to you Mr. Von Slatt…

Good post about open source hardware, and one of my favorite magazines, Make and blogs/RSS.
