Judging from the buzz it's created, the Telectroscope seems to be quite the hit on both sides of the Atlantic. There are over 1,000 photos so far on Flickr!

Not only are giant pseudo-telescopes garnering attention, but also a man's flying over the Alps with a jetpack ,we can keep up with the latest Mars landing via Twitter (when Twitter is up, anyway; it's been a bit overtaxed lately), and some enterprising soul has created a steampunk-themed USB drive.

Once upon a time, zeppelins flew over Europe and mechanical elephants marched around Britain. It's true! Nowadays, we can decorate our home in Victorian manner (very stylishly, too), and restore the automata of the past, in honor of what once was. But watch out, because you know what the next trend's going to be? Oilpunk!

Blogger Brendan: By coincidence, just came across a fine giant pseudo-telescope picture yesterday. Okay, real telescope, pseudo-something else.
