Port Babbage is an area of New Babbage, a Steampunk community in the Virtual World of Second Life It is named after Charles Babbage, the inventor of the world's first computer,which was never built, in 1831.
The setting reminds me of how a British City would have looked in 1887, at the time of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, if Charles Babbage's computer were actually built. Advances such as electrical power and manned flying machines would have certainly arrived earlier. But coal-based pollution would have tinged the sky a foggy green, ,and required light during daytime hours, just as it did in industrial cities in 1871.
I achieved the green sky effect with Gelato in advanced sky settings, and did the video quickly with the film feature in Google Picasa Editor
This video is set to the National Hymn of England, Sir William Parry's Jerusalem.
