Steampunk Sex Toy

An unemployed engineering student used some of her excess of free time to create this steampunk vibrator, made out of “stainless steel, brass, and awesome.” For the moment it runs off of compressed air while she looks for a more powerful boiler than her pressure cooker and a way to use steam without making it so hot that you have to wear welding gloves to touch it (which, well, kind of defeats the purpose).

Some details of its construction, per The Lady Cartoonist:

The piece was machined out of a solid hunk of stainless steel (no easy task), and fitted with the world’s itty-bittiest Tesla Turbine (if you’ve never heard of a Tesla Turbine, check it out). It’s truly a wonderful bit of engineering- the Tesla turbine is hard to create even in larger sizes, and this one is fitted into the base of the shaft. It uses a set of smooth disks in it’s mechanism- and in a stroke of brilliance, Ani used high RPM dremel disks.

It has been christened the steamvibe. Bored engineers with lots of free time tend to come up with the neatest stuff.

  1. It may be steam powered, which is awesome, but it doesn't really have any sort of steam punk styling to it. It looks more like an alien rectal probe.

  3. I hope the Tesla turbine is geared down as opposed to directly linked to the off-axis weight in the tip. Because, you know, strong vibration at 40,000 RPM isn't pleasureable, it's an ultrasonic homogeniser. Ow.

    Wonder what the airflow requirement is? If it needs a hulking great compressor going thumpa-thumpa-thumpa, she might do better to just sit on that.

    Also, I agree it lacks 'period' stylistic flair. Um… let me rephrase that…

  5. This could easily be attached to a saddle like cushion covering a kinetic air pump.. so that a rocking motion would build air pressure and power the device at the same time, thus removing the need for steam. No need for some type of steam coolant which in all probability would have caused a dramatic loss of pressure. The level of vibratory stimulation would be determined by the user's physical involvement.
