Steam, punk

I wonder what Victorian engineers would make of today's technology. No doubt they would be impressed by our achievements and by the mystic abilities of small items with bright screens and no moving parts.

I wonder if they would be as impressed by the way we discard an item on a whim after a year or two. 

We seem to have lost the ability to design a thing of quality with a long life in mind.
