The Steampunk Black and White Underwidget is a 24hr clock that sits on your steampunk desktop looking as if it is part of that desktop. The underwidget is designed to work with the Steampunk Timekeeper Orrery MkII that has a transparent glass middle section that can be made fully opaque or fully transparent. When fully transparent the underwidget does its job acting as the orrery's internal gubbins. However, the underwidget does not need the orrery and can simply sit on the desktop on its own. It has a shadow that can be enabled to make it seem to sit deeper into the desktop in a three dimensional sense.

It has been made black and white to correspond with my black and white desktop wallpapers that you can get here: yereverluvinuncleber.deviantar…

The underwidget is designed to work with the Steampunk Timekeeper Orrery MkII that has a transparent glass middle section that can be made fully opaque or fully transparent. When fully transparent the underwidget does its job acting as the orrery's internal gubbins. However, the underwidget does not need the orrery and can simply sit on the desktop on its own. It has a shadow that can be enabled to make it seem to sit deeper into the desktop in a three dimensional sense. The Underwidget works better with one of our existing background wallpapers that you can get here.

You can see how it works from the image below. The widget really looks as if it is embedded into the actual desktop.

The underwidget is still beta and some bits may not work completely, although most bugs have now been fixed. Added dock vitality, correct layering inherited from the orrery widget. Still need to fix the installation image though.

Note that the widget is not just eye-candy, it also acts as a working 24hr clock, the single hand points to both the hour and minutes indicating the time. The cogs and wheels rotate providing a clockwork motion giving life to your static desktop.

The red tap removes the shadow and re-enables it each time you click upon it. You can even interact with each individual cog. Simply click on each.

Clicking on the upper winding point opens the widget's preferences. Whilst all these things are happening full sound effects are provided.

The widget can be locked into position by clicking on the outer ring. A locking pin will appear in position to indicate the widget is locked into place.

The underwidget can be seen doing its job through the orrery centre glass in the image below - note the cogs and the wheels, they are all moving.

You will, yahoo-widgets-logo.png of course, need the Konfabulator engine for this widget to run. Get the Yahoo widget Konfabulator engine here.   

and the Mac version here: http://desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2x10a50/yahoo_widgets_4.5.2.dmg

All javascript widgets need an engine to function, in this case the widget uses the Konfabulator widget engine. The engine interprets the javascript and creates the widget according to the XML description and using the images you provide.

This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it has been tested on Vista, Windows 7 /8 and Mac Os/X so it should work on all of these o/s Instructions for the steampunk underwidget with no problems. There is full help for this widget to be found here .
