Steampunk Computers – Between Vintage and Modern

Steampunk Computers – Between Vintage and Modern

SteampunkComp1Hi Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently  featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early  1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still  widely used — usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England — but  with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional  technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules  Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an  earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style  presentations of “the path not taken” of such technology as dirigibles, analog  computers, or digital mechanical computers (such as Charles Babbage’s Analytical  engine); these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a  presumption of functionality.
