About the Setup Built from an old church organ with parts scavenged from eBay and local antique fairs, Bruce Rosenbaum spent thousands of dollars and six months building this steampunk computer setup with the help of three specialists.

The organ was gutted and its innards were replaced with a 3GHz AMD Phenom II X4 945 processor, 3GB RAM, 1TB storage and three displays. Even the scanner and printer and sneakily hidden inside of the organ.

Everything here actually works! Check out some of the features below and be sure to view the additional photos.

Features:

  • All switches and knobs on the organ do something, whether it’s volume control dials or power switches.
  • The keyboard was originally from Logitech, but completely rebuilt and fit with glass typewriter keys from the early 20th century and specially made brass keys.
  • Slide the keyboard back to uncover an Epson scanner and Samsung printer built into the desk.
  • The small LCD monitors are made using LCD picture frames and powered by USB.
  • The webcam is a Microsoft camera, hidden inside an antique Brownie bellows camera.
  • Sound actually does come out of the two reproduction cygnet horns, modified with modern acoustic suspension drivers.
  • Working clock designed to look like a steam gage.

  • love steampunk. great.

  • The mouse wasn’t mentioned. It looks like a replica of the small time machine used in the 60′s version of the movie “The Time Machine”.

  • Is it possible to purchase any of these mods as an order from yourself? I absolutely love the USB stick! (you ought to think about using the power from the input to turn little cogs inside)

  • Wrote an article about this great piece of technology/art on my website! Thanks for sharing this with us!
