I've seen alot of Steampunk instructables but what gives it the name steampunk?
Try this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk
Waterpunk + heat. Or was it steamdude + attitude?
Interesting, i've never heard it put quite this way.
This is a good answer. I found it by entering" what is steam punk" in the search bar just above here.
It's also a good question. L
Google is your friend. Don't dis your friends.
It was named by analogy with cyberpunk, which see.
