ANything decorated or modded to look like it came from the steam age. Think of the mechanical wonders on the shoe "Wild Wild West". Search for Steam Punk on this site and see what's here, then google it. It can be very nice if you like that kind of stuff and I Do.

thanks thats realy helpfull
It's not just things, its a way of life, dressing in 'steam stuff', making things, etc. The closest I got to steam punk was the series of books called 'Mortal Engines' - EPIC read.

ok thanks
Steam is water that has been heated and turned into vapor.  Kind of an easy question.  The part I don't understand is why you insist on calling me a punk. 

I mean what's ice, punk? It's water that got cold and turned frozen solid. That's what!

lol or no its like people make stuff relly complicated out of comper like pens and stuff i just want to know if theres a back story also i understand the concept of steam

Oh, sorry about that! You meant steampunk! Yeah.  Re-d has the right idea.  It's all about substituing brass and leather in place of plastics and synthetic fabrics, and also substituing tiny steam-powered Babbage engines in place of silicon microchips.

Sorry about calling you a punk.
