And to celebrate this, The Primgraph magazine - in association with the Empire of Steeltopia - will be hosting The Clockwork Ball on Saturday April 2, 2011.
There will be two separate Balls: 2-4pm slt AND 7-9pm slt.
The Balls will be held in The Pneumatic Revolution Lounge in Steeltopia.
The invitation states:
We are living in a time that will perhaps come to be known as the golden age of the automaton. His Imperial Highness Steelcobra Calamari has decreed that the State of Steeltopia will celebrate the creations of our time at a fine ball, at which it shall be proved that mechanicals are as graceful as humans upon the dance floor.Prizes will be awarded for the attendees whose appendages and / or apparel most please the eyes of our judges.
Whether you are called clockworks, automatons, robots, war machines, household helpers, factory workers and so on, please join your constructed colleagues for an evening of well-earned merriment.
