Remote Controlled Steampunk Powered Centrepede

This is both bizarre looking and a remarkable piece of model making engineering. It’s a steam powered locomotive with a centipede like locomotion method.

Game animator I-Wei Huang loves steam. The San Francisco Bay Area resident is so obsessed with steam that a year ago, he began making steam-powered robots by hacking together small hobbyist steam engines, toys and radio-control kits.

Steampunk is a genre of writing that posits Victorians with advanced technology based on steam and coal not oil. The steamtoys site shows many other marvellous mechanical steam driven toys including the steam driven ancestor of R2D2!

Also this one device probably is among the most important gadgets ever created for the industrial age.
