Birmingham’s Brass Goggles brings news of a The Great Crystal Cyberdrome Exhibition at next week’s Eastercon (London)…

“We propose to exhibit a collection of inventions that never were and past visions of the world of today. Clockwork computers and steam servants. Mechanical monstrosities and electrical entertainments. Retro-futurism at its finest. And we need YOU to provide the exhibits for us. Bring along models of difference-engine controlled vacuum cleaners and cast iron lunar shuttles. Coal-fired jet engines and atomic monorail carriages.”

Wish I’d have thought of this when I was running the art shows at long-ago science fiction conventions. They’ll even have steam-powered daleks

I’ll be keeping an eye out for online photos of the Great Crystal Cyberdrome displays.
