The Tooth Fairy Calculator

Artist "Rubesart" brings us this Tooth Fairy Calculator. Despite it's frivolously silly name it's a wonderfully evocative artifact that includes delightful extras like inset glass windows and rotating gears. That kind of tactile gilding, making it an object designed to be handled and not just looked at, fills me with glee.

My dirty little secret is that I'm a Steampunk fan too. So I love anything that mixes the two genres. Thats a beauty.

It looks a lot like something out of Guillermo Del Toro's HellBoy films. very neat design.

I think B.R. is onto something. Judging by Hellboy II, it's probably inspired by those tooth fairies, which were...definitely not silly.
