Steampunk is a fun sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery. Inspired by industrialised Western civilization, steampunk is set in an alternate history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West” in which steam power runs the world. Everything from clothing, gadgets and large scale machinery have a very distinct look that that can’t be mistaken.
Elise Siegwald is a set and accessories designer from Strasbourg, France. She creates very cool and unique pieces but her steampunk sculptures really ought my eye. One piece especially stood out, an incredible steampunk Game Boy. She has all the elements of a steampunk device covered, from it’s brushed copper body, to its extensive use of cogs and gears. I especially love the extra little touch of the offset magnifying glass focusing in on the screen.
This steampunk Game Boy would be an impressive addition to any video game collection. Elise Siegwald has done a fantastic job putting a steampunk flare to this nostalgic childhood toy. Share this article with those video game obsessed fans in your life using the buttons below. [via behance]
