Media PC, 19th-century style James Onscotch's elaborate Oil PC Steampunk Media Immersion Computer started life as an Asus motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 processor, an Nvidia 8800GT video card and a 320GB SATA hard drive. Built inside a clear plastic tank, the Ubuntu system is bathed in oil that runs through a cooler on top that resembles an old-fashioned radiator.

Trimmed in wood with brass supports, the case has switches, pipes, valves and radio tubes, adding to the system's Industrial Revolution ambiance.
