Datamancer steampunk keyboards: Richard Nagy's legacy lives on


Originally published at:


Oh, man! Can you imagine if they had actually had keyboards back in the late 1800s?




I love the design, but at that price, one can literally buy a high-end PC instead. Looks like any Victoriana computing I do will be with entirely home-fabricated mods.


That was kind of my point, but I guess a computer keyboard is a distinct thing. I just find it odd when people make “Steampunk” versions of things that already existed back in the 1800s. Like terrariums.


I miss Richard “Datamancer” Nagy and his updates. He really had the maker and engineering chops to match his hefty imagination. That keyboard is a work of art.


I really need to sell my first novel so I can afford one of these…
