Croatian artist Ivan Mavrovic turns modern technology into steampunk gadgets that still retain their functionality.
In a world where everyone seems interested only in getting their hands on the latest futuristic designs when it comes to gadgets, some, like Ivan Mavrovic, prefer to look back in history, to the time of the Victorian era, when brass, copper and wood were the main ingredients that made things cool. But interlacing modern tech with steampunk design isn't easy, especially if you want to maintain functionality, but Croatian steampunk enthusiast Ivan Mavrovic does a fantastic job. Not only do his retro-cell phones look incredibly cool, but they also work as well as normal modern-day phones. They may not be as feature-full as today's smartphones, but his sturdy converted Nokia phones work perfectly and make gorgeous accessories.
Based in Zagreb, Croatia, Ivan creates not only steampunk mobile phones, but all kinds of useful tools like steampunk USB drives, wristwatches, keyboards and many more. Head over to his blog to check out his amazing collection.
