Floppy Drive Looks Old, Acts YoungThe floppy diskette was an icon of portable storage.Â For years, this was the de facto standard for moving information from one location to another.Â Heck, an entire industry was made for duplicating floppy diskettes.Â Today things are a bit different.Â We still have the specialized duplicator equipment, but the media has changed.Â Now, the de facto standard are USB flash drives. Well, this commercialized floppy has the look and feel of the old days, but all the flare and space of modern USB sticks.Â Check out this USB floppy drive.
Granted, the size is a bit much for today’s UberGeek, but clearly a great conversation piece. If this has your wheels spinning then check out our USB tutorial on modifying a true floppy diskette into a USB drive. Source:Â UberGizmo.
