Steampunk moves on

The Steampunk movement has fostered a burst of creativity in many fields: writing, sculpture, costume design and many others. In a slight change of form, see below some great flicks of Steampunk Creatures, who actually move! They are the creation of Crabfu Steamworks. They are all steam powered, and a great deal of thought and planning, not to say mechanical skill, has gone into them.

Could these cute critters form the inspiration for some sci-fi / steampunk literature?

I’m thinking of something along the lines of that great french movie, City of Lost Children, or even the charming K9 in Dr. Who!

Could they perhaps be used as scouting devices, to carry messages or supplies into contained places, or maybe even as assassins?

Would love to know what you think.

    • Thanks – they are rather gorgeous aren’t they? I’m currently working on a short story inspired by them, which I’ll post on here progressively once it’s finished.
