Steam Powered iPod Kicks it Old School

Some people mod up their gadgets to look all steampunk on the outside while others make their gadgets actually be powered by steam! A steampunk craftsman has taken a Jensen #75 steam engine coupled to a Lego Technic Motor with a 5V regulator circuit soldered to a female USB connection with a diode and a .5 amp fuse for circuit protection. I don’t know what the heck any of that means either, but the point is that he’s now charging up his iPod with a steam engine and that’s pretty freakin’ cool.
