What is steampunk? "Steampunk is what the past would look like if it took place in the future." It is a type of subculture that mixes the clothing styles of past generations (such as the Victorian era) with modern conveniences, creating inventions that look as if they could have been created generations ago. In general steam punk is creating modern conveniences using Victorian Era Technology.

Victorian is not a specific culture, but refers to a time period and a "look", of the industrialized 19th century. This period saw the invention of many key parts of the modern world (mechanized manufacturing, extensive urbanization, telecommunications, office life and mass-transit), and steampunk uses this existing technology and structure to imagine an even more advanced 19th century, often complete with Victorian-inspired wonders like steam-powered aircraft and mechanical computers. Many enjoy steampunk's unique approach to technology: re-imagining modern capabilities with 19th century machines.

Steam more generally signifies a world in which steam technology is both dominant and prolific. During the Victorian era, steam power revolutionized almost every aspect of life. The steam engine made full-scale industrialization possible and produced mechanical power more efficiently and to greater degrees than a human or animal labor could manage on their own.
