Automaton. Robot. Cyborg. Clockwork Doll. These things interest me. (along with golems, homunculi, frankensteins, revenants, zombies...)

I was IM chatting the other evening with a new acquaintance whose steampunk persona is a cyborg character. (cool) I was joking that bio-mechs would be useful right about now for me, as it would only require just a litle oil and tune up instead of days of flesh and blood to recover from my distance event excesses. Anyway, off on a tangent, I found some recent robot links.

I still haven't found the perfect Nerf, dart, or water pistol to mod out for my steampunk ladies' gun, but I couldn't resist putting an Ebay bid in on this little capgun gem:

Ain't it soooooooo sweet?

Perhaps, instead of a muff, it should have a garter holster? (To which, of course, I can add some more steamy accents)
