The Raygun Gothic Rocketship is, according to its fearless crew, a "rococo retro-futurist, future-rustic vernacular between yesterday's tomorrow and the future that never was." Click through to see what they mean.

The team, who also engineered the infamous Steampunk Tree House, describe the project as

intended to creatively explore our ideas about evolution and technology as they relate to our notions about progress and The Future. This project exists at the blurry edge where science and fiction blend and become both our reality, and the stories we tell ourselves about that reality.


Intended to be unveiled at this year's Burning Man, you can follow the progress of the project on Twitter.
