Quote from: morozow on February 26, 2022, 07:38:37 PMKostroma designer turned the apartment into a fantastic world of Jules VerneAn alternative reality exists. At home, designer Ilya Zabagrin has everything in the style of "steampunk": pipes, gears, a fabulous bathyscaphe refrigerator, welding glasses on a pot ... "Steampunk" combines technology and natural materials.Electricity has not replaced steam energy in Ilya Zabagrin's apartment. Plastic does not exist. People are dressed in fancy outfits - vests with watch chains hanging from their pockets, hats with goggles - welding glasses. This is how fans of "steampunk" imagine the world. Ilya Zabagrin became interested in this subculture 8 years ago. Now his apartment looks like Captain Nemo's bathyscaphe. And the impression of the guests of the house from such a design is the same.Ilya Zabagrin, designer: "At first, of course, it's a shock. But the shock is good - people show their emotions. Actually, I hope that after visiting this interior, people will look at the world differently. If this happens, it means that I have achieved something in this life."The interior began with the kitchen. Under the impression of Jules Verne's novel "20 thousand leagues under the sea" Ilya created a fabulous bathyscaphe - for 6 months he covered the refrigerator with genuine leather, painted, decorated. The result exceeded all expectations.Ilya Zabagrin, designer: "The work is done by hand. The top part – it's brass - is there at the top of the pipe. My wife says it's like a periscope - food is watching us through this periscope."There are no materials for the "steampunk" style in construction stores. Ilya, a biologist by education, had to master more than ten specialties to make the necessary items - he is a welder, a carpenter, a carpenter, a furrier, and an artist. Everything that his guests admire so much, the designer made with his own hands. Friends help with laser cutting of metal. And sometimes the master has to spoil new things to get, for example, a lamp. That's why the clock in his room goes in the opposite direction.Ilya Zabagrin, designer: "I would like to create my own parallel universe. Everyone has the right to their own parallel universe. Each of us is the world. And I would like to stop time, and even turn it back."The designer's wife treats her husband's hobby with understanding. She allowed him to decorate the room and kitchen in the spirit of "steampunk", but the bedroom in the apartment is decorated in the style of "Provence". But this is a completely different story.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1SDLyHPjZc#
Quote from: morozow on September 15, 2022, 08:48:35 PMThis Steam Motorcycle project was created with the aim of looking into the past, feeling the spirit of that time, touching the technologies of the 18th and 19th centuries, feeling the romance of the steam era and just out of engineering interest. I wanted to understand the properties and qualities of a real steam engine, as well as technical nuances, subtleties and the possibility of real application of old technologies. In other words, I wanted to create a steam engine, see what it would be capable of and just enjoy its work.I've been working on the project for several years. The motorcycle has gone through more than one global modernization, and as a result, a unique device has turned out, with record (for its type) parameters. The maximum speed on a flat road is 60 km/h. And the power reserve is 15 km. Which is an absolute record for steam motorcycles with a classic engine type. The motorcycle is made by hand, from scrap metal, without the use of any industrial capacity.Well, now, let's look at everything in more detail.The history of the creation of a steam motorcycle and a discussion with the participation of the creator - https://habr.com/ru/post/688046/YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGYgVfHu8O6FXVY7ru0S0ng

Is anyone familiar with it?I am curious though - what is the Russian connection? The location (though the Adriatic Sea isn't really Russia) or the author or the publication?Sorontar
