Cool Stuff: Steampunk Flux Capacitor

Lately we've been posting some of the cool products and creations we've come across while doing our daily news research. So I've decided to turn this into a feature called "Coll Stuff". So expect to see more "Cool Stuff" postings in the future, whenever we come across something cool. This is more likely to happen on a slow news day, and won't interfere with the regular news postings.

Today's "Cool Stuff" find is a Steampunk Flux Capacitor. Doc Brown and Marty McFly never had to recreate "the device that makes time travel possible" when they were stuck back in the old west (if you recall, it was the fuel line that was the problem). But if they had, it would probably look something like this. Flickr user absinthetic says that the prop, which he calls a "Chronotheric Fluxing Capacitron", is part of his Halloween 2007 costume. What's his costume? He's a 19th century time traveler of course. I hope absinthetic uploads photos of his finished design, but for now, check out the Chronotheric Fluxing Capacitron at I wonder how one would get up to 88mph in the 19th century?
