I think it would be cool to build one where the gauges responded to load or temp, steam pressure vented occasionally, the "furnace" glowed as more power was called for, and gears and cams moved. Imagine having to stoke the furnace with a bellows to squeeze a few more MHz out of your rig during a critical battle.

[citation][nom]ddan49[/nom]They should mod some components to look steampunk now. A steampunk CPU cooler... now what would THAT look like?[/citation]

It'd probably look like Doc Brown's giant refrigerator in Back To The Future Part III. :lol:

Why are the Art Deco keyboards included in this round up?

Thanks for the photos, some very cool looking things here. While perhaps difficult and more dangerous to work with... TUBE type monitors would have worked better for the OLD-STYLE computers. Especially if they are made for exhibition, not real use.

Is it just me, or are the picture articles on Tomshardware always broken/hardly work? I try it with Chrome, and I try it with IE, and both have major issues with these type of articles (mainly moving from one picture to the next).
