The design of the “Philco PC” was inspired by the 1950′s design classic Philco Predicta, as well as an eclectic mixture of modern minimalism, the steampunk movement, and antiques. As lead designer Dave Schultze explains, “The result is a design aesthetic that blends multiple elements of the familiar, but with some surprisingly fresh styling that just so happens to house a state-of-the-art Windows 7 PC.”
Steampunk has been steadily growing as a relevant sub-genre of science fiction since the late 80′s and early 90′s, with fans being among some of the more passionate out there. Not wanting to pass by this growing popularity, Moscow designer Alex Neretin enters with his Rhombus Maximus wireless Steampunk mouse and USB flash drive. Made entirely of copper, brass, and walnut (there was no plastic in Victorian times, people!) the Rhombus Maximus will surely leave Steampunk lovers rejoicing as yet another wonderfully designed piece of art can adorn their collections.
