Steampunk Ornithopter

Posted by on October 22nd,2008

“Flash Gorden, watch out!” With those telling words, the creator of this whimsical outfit begins her description of it. The creator in question is a Miss Amanda Scrivener AKA Professor Maelstromme, who also maintains several items of accessory For Sale.

“This both comfortable and lightweight Ornithopter,” she writes, “with its five minute capacity […] steam reservoir is ideal for performing those mid-flight Airship boarding actions and those days when perambulation does not quite cut it.” The contraption can apparently be operated with a single hand, leaving the other free to protect oneself with such an elegant ray-gun as the lady here is handling.

Many thanks to the author of the Steampunk Pics blog for suggesting this!
