Source: @FRISK_P Awesome Functioning Steampunk Wrist Watches and Other Creations by Japanese DIY Artist 2018-03-16 Fri 2018-04-20 Fri Japanese social media channels can be an adventurous source for DIY projects, whether it be revealing a $3 rusty knife to be a high quality piece of Japanese cutlery or turning Thomas the Tank Engine into a Mad Max-esque apocalyptic death machine. Japanese Twitter user and DIY tinkerer @FRISK_P, however, stands out for not only crafting their gear with an incredibly cool and detailed steampunk aesthetic, but also complete functionality! While FRISK_P creates a variety of marvelous contraptions bring the world of science fiction and steampunk to life, it's the artist's take on out-of-this-world working wrist watches that is turning heads everywhere. #私の作品もっと沢山の人に広がれ祭り 他の人が作らないような腕時計を作ったりします。 pic.twitter.com/yb3qyMhmMa— フリスクP (@FRISK_P) 2018年3月9日 With a self-professed motive of "making wrist watches that nobody else does", FRISK_P accomplishes just that with a trio of time-telling hardware that could be transferred seamlessly into any given steampunk realm. Three standouts include an "Automata Wrist Watch" that actually writes time with an ink and quill set, a propeller hologram watch, and a striking Vacuum Fluorescent Display watch. Here they are with videos showing their functionality, which need to be seen to be believed. Source: @FRISK_P As you can see in the video, the device uses a micro-computer and battery powered robot arms equipped with a quill to not only write the current time, but also erase it from the display as needed.

Source: @FRISK_P Originally mounted on a cat (who couldn't make much use of it), the VFD wrist watch is a bit too bulky so FRISK_P eventually made a stand to mount it on. The watch is constructed from a VFD tube kit, Arduino board, USB charger, and cat collars fastened into a belt with a wire cage. Of course, when you are as talented as FRISK_P, you don't need to limit yourselves to wrist watches. The artist has also hand-crafted a variety of steampunk devices, including a steampunk cat tank, amplifier, raygun, and keyboard! 銃を搭載したドローンの動画が話題ですが、次弾自動装填装置付き連発単装砲をネコに搭載した動画がこちらになります。→ http://t.co/z2pxsIRQ8P pic.twitter.com/N9TTGZJ0qq— フリスクP (@FRISK_P) 2015年7月22日 基板をセットして仮組み。乾電池駆動なのでポータブル運用できる。ピクニックとかにも良いかもね。 pic.twitter.com/Mfa3NDQndy— フリスクP (@FRISK_P) 2015年8月8日 @koreru1 私も光線銃を作りましたよ～。→ http://t.co/LgBYOJFUP0 pic.twitter.com/r61ZOgQnbq— フリスクP (@FRISK_P) 2015年6月26日 Here's the keyboard in action.
