Geek Dad- Wired talks about the Boiler Bar

Geekdad an article from Wired about the Boiler Bar

I love the idea of a flame shooting bar in everyone’s backyard!

This video was shot by Geeks are Sexy at Austin Maker Fair at Kyrsten’s 40th Birthday party (that why we have the silly hats on)

I mention Oilpunk in this video to explain our aesthetics. I’ve been asked a few times what I mean by this, so I put together a short paragraph to explain how I see our look and the influence to our work.

Oilpunk: is Punk, Hot Rod, Geek, Blue Collar, and Maker Culture mixed together with the Petroleum Golden Age of the last century. It’s the intersection of petroleum products, art, and science. It harkens back to a time when hard work, combustion engines and industry shaped us, yet it speaks to the future. It’s taking the castoffs of modern industrial culture and objects from the last decade to reuse today. Dirty, greasy, sweaty, it’s a work hard, play hard style.
