there's a great sci-fi novel called "the difference engine" by william gibson based on, strangely enough, the differential engine as designed by babbit. it was a precursor to the the modern computer.

gibson's novel has all kinds of incredible jules verne/hg wells kind of machines in the victorian era as some sort of plot to kill someone important unwinds.
