Steampunk Contraption is World’s Largest Corkscrew

   Posted by: manny    in Gadgets

Wow, this steampunk-style corkscrew is truly amazing! Created by Rob Higgs, it’s likely the world’s largest corkscrew, and it even pours a glass of wine! It took him 3 years to make this, what an amazing feat.

The only way to make it better, that I can see, would be to power the crank with steam instead of having to turn it by hand. But that’s just a minor nitpick, this gadget is so mind blowing. Excellent job, Sir!

Steampunk Batman Game that Sadly Failed

   Posted by: manny    in Gaming

I’m so sad this Steampunk Batman game will never see the light of day. But at least we get a sneak peek of what could have been!

Based on the comic Gotham by Gaslight, Batman goes after Jack the Ripper in the late 1800′s. Don’t you just love his cape? This would have been so cool!

Day 1 Studios, the developer behind of F.3.A.R. and Fracture, was also working on a video game starring Batman. Their vision was to use the one-shot comic Gotham by Gaslight as the source material. Set at the end of the 19th century, Gotham by Gaslight follows the Dark Knight as he tracks down Jack the Ripper. Concept art for the game revealed Gotham by Gaslight’s steampunk vibe.

Now, we have a better look at what Gotham by Gaslight would have been like thanks to an animation prototype video from a source at Day 1 Studios.
