Inspired by The Simpsons episode ‘Krusty Gets Kancelled’ (the scene where Bart is touring the Playboy Mansion) the Steampunk Bubble Pipe is a 3D-printed prototype toy for adults who want to blow bubbles in a sophisticated way.

It features two types of cap, a flat one and one with a rotating dome, for different types of bubble blowing action. One creates a larger bubble above the pipe bowl which can be gently blown away.

The other has a rotating dome to allow the aperture to be dipped into the bubble solution, and the bubble to detach automatically.

To make this prototype more authentic I used a real pipe stem, and also designed a stand that would allow the pipe to be displayed when not in use.
