Steam Powered PC? Yes It is Possible

We know that steam driven technology is very popular, but some PC enthusiasts are taking it to the next level. For example, a Swede who goes by the nickname Alexzpro on a forum dedicated to electronics has developed a computer that is powered by a steam engine.

Yes, just like those old trains that you may see in the movies, the Titanic or any mechanism developed at the beginning of the industrial era.

We are not talking here of any Alienware, but a Raspebery Pi Zero. The computer was connected to an electric motor, that when it was spun by the steam engine, it produced enough electricity to keep the PC on. Being a Raspberry Pi Zero, it didn’t require too much electrical output, only 5 volts, although the system was able to reach 17 volts when it was at maximum speed.

The steam engine itself was put into motion through two propane burners that heat water in a boiler.

You probably don’t have too many chances to power your PC using a steam engine of these dimensions (assuming you are using a modern PC), but it’s good to know that it is a possibility.
