Lost your iPod charger and have a “Jensen #75 steam engine with a LEGO Technic motor, a 5V regulator circuit and a .5 amp fuse” laying around? You’re in luck, as they can be used to create a makeshift charger. Video after the break.

Stoke it with a few pellets and add water, and your Steampunk Eye-Pod Victrola is going round and round again.
