Steampunk, while something I have never gotten into, is an interesting concept that romanticizes a bygone age of top hats, monocles and industrialization. It also gives rise to some unique takes on technology, like a steampunk version of Samus Aran's arm cannon for example. Made by Skinz-N-Hydez, this unique take on Samus' trademark weapon is only one of many items crafted by the deviantart member.
Whether you like this arm cannon remake or not, a lot of time and energy was put into this thing, and I admire him for that, if nothing else. I certainly wouldn't have the patience or drive to assemble something so detailed. Metroid is not the only videogame Skinz has shown attention to either and if you check out his deviantart account you'll find items for Legend of Zelda and Fallout.
