A modder known as “Skytee” has created a unique Steampunk-themed TorrentMeter out of a 1908 brass voltmeter.
“I got inspired by reading Tom Igoe’s article in Make Magazine issue 11, about an antique gauge displaying air quality data from the web,” he explained in a blog post.
“It hit a nerve: friends and I had once built a steam powered teletype. Since we’ve got fiber optical intertubes at home, I wanted a big brass gauge telling me how big my pipe was. And that’s the idea of my TorrentMeter.”
Additional TorrentMeter specs, blueprints and info can be found here.
