Full Steam Ahead!

What do you get when you cross Science Fiction, The Victorian Era and Inventions? ... Steampunk!

What is Steampunk?
Steampunk has its roots in Science fiction, where the Victorian Era style is still in fashion and steam power is used for nearly everything. The Victorian Era was the period that saw the development and industrialisation of many key aspects of the modern world (mechanized manufacturing, extensive urbanization, telecommunications, office life and mass-transit). Steampunk uses this existing technology and structure to imagine an even more advanced 19th century, often complete with Victorian-inspired wonders like steam-powered aircraft and mechanical computers.

Although many works now considered influential to the genre were published in the 1960s and 1970s, the term 'steampunk' originated in the late 1980s as a 'tongue-in-cheek' variant of cyberpunk, by author K. W. Jeter.

Movies inspired by Steampunk are:
  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
  • Wild Wild West
  • City of Embers
  • Van Helsing
  • Sherlock Holmes (Guy Ritchie's Version)
  • The Prestige
  • Treasure Planet (Disney)
  • Legend of Sleepy Hollow
  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
  • The Golden Compass
