A modded laptop to bash out your softcore romantic fantasies on


Boing Boing is quickly pioneering a name for itself in the steampunk/electronics mod department, to the point where I think they could quite possibly branch out and create a whole new blog for the basement-dwelling masses. Clunk Clunk, anyone?

Their latest feature is of a laptop kitted out to resemble an old-fashioned portable typewriter, courtesy of writer Mary Robinette Kowal. Bet I know the kind of Mills ‘n Boons-y type of poetic ramblings she’ll be tapping out on this baby, just look at the thing! If only Catherine had possession of one of these mods, Heathcliffe would’ve been hers, *sob*.
