"'Steampunk... What's that?!' That question is a common reaction from people new to the name of this style trend -- one that's been around for more than twenty years, since the term was first coined in 1987. Generally, Steampunk is a fashion, design, and popular-culture phenomenon that combines romance and technology. Among its many influences are futurism, time travel, and the Victorian Age. These seemingly disparate facets combine into a resulting look that might be called 'Mad Max Meets Jane Austen.'"
