Check out this Steampunk TorrentMeter Bandwidth meter that has been created by Skytee. Who was inspired by Tom Igoe’s article in Make Magazine issue 11, about an antique gauge displaying air quality data from the web.
The article Skytee says hit a nerve and made the decision to create TorrentMeter. Using a brass 1908 20cm dia voltmeter the TorrentMeter was created.
If you fancy making your very own TorrentMeter full instructions are available from the Skypee website.
