Tonight: Steampunk Gadgets in Warehouse 13

This just in...

SyFy (formerly SciFi) Network's new show Warehouse 13 -- X-Files crossed with a warehouse full of antique supernatural gadgets -- premieres tonight (and Datamancer has a keyboard featured!).

Read about it here. See more gadgetry pictures here. There seems to be a nice Victorian house involved, too.

If you watch it, let me know what you think. And if you figure out how to watch it without cable, please let me know!

You can watch Warehouse 13 on Hulu:

Episodes are posted the day after they initially air on TV. Episode 1 is expected July 8.

The last five episodes will remain up until the next season begins.

Thanks for the tip. I ran to record it before I even finished reading your post.

I liked it a lot. Story very similar to Friday the 13th the series and I saw many things "inspired" by Lost, Raiders, Heros, but altogether it worked. The single male and female as the leads thing...horse...dead. But I guess they keep using it because it works, I liked them anyways. And I always like Saul Rubinek.

Lots of Steampunk items. How long before we see people putting cell phones into Altoids tins? Maybe the video phone was from some maker like the keyboard and probably the Tesla ray gun? And even the Victorian house where the agents are staying is very cool. The insect specimen display in the bedroom.

Thanks again for the tip, I surely would have missed it.

apparently the communicators wer invented by Philo T. Farnsworth (the man who invented television, and a coo,device called the farnsworth fusor.) also, in the first shot we get of the warehouse, i noticed an airship hanging from the ceiling. i wonder if it will show up again.

Watched a bit of this on tivo last night is super steampunky. The prop masters are probably having so much fun. I love the communicator.

also, the steampunk rayguns were cool too.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I love all the Steampunk tech on warehouse 13! I want the computer and I wish my mobile phone looked more like Philo's Farnsworth, the even cooler black version! I wish I was more handy at DIY to make stuff like this!
