Straight from your steampunk campaign
It's Professor Wrigglesworth! We saw this guy while flipping through channels at a friend's house and were very impressed. Especially since he was showing off his skeletronic exo-skeleton, which is entirely human powered and so could be used in a steampunk era (you can use it at fancy dress parties, and for reaching fruit!).
But a google search reveals that the guy is more stand-up comedian than electrical engineer, and that makes him a lot less interesting.
And before you say it, Frank Zappa would never wear that ascot.
That's slightly disappointing.
