postheadericon Steampunk USB cufflinks are as awesome as they are pricey

You wouldn’t think something classifiable as “wearable storage” would look so darn dapper, but here we are, staring at just about the finest cufflinks we ever did see. Not only are these handmade shirt cuffs beautiful in the most steampunk of ways, they’re also pretty useful as each features an 8GB flash storage chip with the utterly ubiquitous USB connector attached. Basically, they’re what James Bond would wear if James Bond wore really awesome cufflinks. The general idea behind them might not exactly be original anymore, but we can’t really fault the execution here. What we could probably find fault with is our lack of $225 of disposable coin, the price one will have to pay to sport this unique pair of hand-carved, walnut-enclosed memory sticks.

[Thanks, Amelia]

Pagani's new supercar, the Huayra, has a steampunk interior that would impress even Dio Eraclea

After a number of leaks and teases Pagani has unleashed its Zonda successor to the world, and it’s the Huayra, a name that we’re still having trouble spelling reliably but know that it’s pronounced “hoo-aii-ra.” Compared to the company’s current offering this new model has a relatively understated design, designed to “shape the wind” rather than tear it a new one like the Zonda does. That said, the Huayra still shares key elements that make it unmistakably Pagani — headlights, gull-wing doors, and a decided pear shape that could make J.Lo blush. Sure, the nose is a bit questionable, making this look a smidge like a Fisker Karma to us, but it’s the interior that really has us intrigued. Click on through for more.

postheadericon We know you didn’t get this Steampunk Etch-a-Sketh for Christmas, but you probably want it now, don’t you?

What you’re looking at above is a real, actual object found in the material world. It’s an Etch-a-Sketch so modified, as to look like a glorious leftover from a bygone era that never was. What era, you ask? Oh, the Victorian era — so named for the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch — with a great dash of fancy added into the mix. We’re talking alternate history, people! A history so wonderful, so beautiful, that a lowly red plastic Etch-a-Sketch could end up both complex and inordinately heavy looking. Made by an industrious youth as a Christmas gift for a chum, we couldn’t imagine a better way to make this boring old gadget look so jolly well festive. Hurrah!
