USB Steampunk With Wood Dash And DialsI am a bit of USB steampunk enthusiast and today Etsy shopping put out a notice on a fine looking piece with a wood body and includes rotating dials.Â Unfortunately I’m just an armchair enthusiast and have yet to build my very own, but one day – it will come. Some say this USB steampunk drive looks like Rosie, the house robot, from the Jetsons.Â I guess the gear piece around the neck reminds you of the tradition maid outfit for a house cleaner back in the 60s.
The designer mentions something about an old narrow bridge as his inspiration for the USB steampunk, but I think he’s referencing the piece of wood he probably lifted off the bridge which he used as the body. The design incorporates a gauge of some sort [no it doesn’t work] along with turn dials along the footer / base of the drive.
The $300 drive comes with a vintage tin box which in-itself is an impressive addition to the flash drive.Source.Â View or buy: Etsy.
