Steam-powered Gaming Cabinet actually works with steam!

Steam-powered Gaming Cabinet

Every now and then we come across steampunk DIYs that look uber cool but are they really steampunk? Not unless there is a whole lot of steam and steampunk flavor. Have a look at this Steam-powered Gaming Cabinet that throws out real steam, making it unique in its own right. And don’t be surprised if I tell you that the patent-pending miniature boiler system generates all the electricity needed to run the machine. A work of steampunk art that is completely self-powered and deserves a pat on the back for the maker.

Steam-powered Gaming Cabinet is capable of powering-up the rig, taking off the grid gaming to a whole new level. All you need is anthracite coal that burns in the section inside this gaming console to produce steam which activates the dynamo to produce electricity. Pretty cool don’t you think?

The Steam Machine console draped in brass has multiple panels to access the different controls and adjustable knobs of this unique gaming rig. Plus there is a boiler viewing panel window to check on the fire and a thermometer to keep track of the right temperature. The controller of this gaming console is equally rocking with metal lines that go right through the typewriter like buttons and joystick.

Both the console and controller have nixie tubes that give a very techno feel to the whole thing. Talking about the hardware loaded into this niche gaming console, well it is stuffed with an Intel Core 4440, Nvidia GeForce GTX960 OC, 400 bits of hard wired ferrite core memory and disc-based random access memory. For the steam production unit, there is a 1000 BTU coal fired burner and 200 PSI rated steam vessel.

And surprisingly it can be all yours for $399.99 USD, now that is a deal you’d not want to miss.
