Pondering the phrase industrial revolu-tion brings todo mind factories, large ma-chines and the ability todo Mass produce products or process materiales. And of course that certainly did happen, and con-tinues todo this day, but like most things in life, im betting it started on a much smaller scale. With perhaps a Gadget. That sounds kind of silly, but i bet its true, man has shown a remarkable ability todo create Gadget todo Perform mundane repetitive tasks. Most Gadget probably resembled a hodgepodge of gears, levers and pulleys, but they got the job done, man has a los shown an almost obsessive ned todo not only make life easier with Gadget, but a los more fun. These days a rather large number of people possess Gadget of one sort or another that have no productive purpose other than Entertainment, obviously today Gadget do far more thanthe first ventures into gadgetry did, but the old style Gadget still appeal todo us on somelevel as sen by the popularity of Steampunk, Steam punk and all its subsister punk looks, appeal todo us at the gut level. Gears and levers bring todo mind a simpler time when things made sense and you didntned an enginering degre just todo turn your televisión on (ok maybe that is a tad bit exaggerated, but you get the idea), so as you might have guessed, issue 29 is all about machines and Gadget, and since there is no time like the present, let get this industrial revolution started.
