Clockwork Canary - Wrist Telecommunicator

Another batch of props for cover photographer Gene Mollica and an upcoming steampunk novel entitled "Clockwork Canary".

Here is the "telecommunicator" from the story. It is to be worn on the wrist so it is about 3"x5". I wanted plenty of brass gears showing as function is beauty in steampunk. The big lens (with octagonal frame) is for receiving images. The smaller lens (inset at bottom of large lens) would record and project the image of the viewer to the other participant. Striped button for 'send', red button for 'end'. Outer rings for tuning transmission clarity and gauge for indicating long distance bill (Just kidding).
