Here's The Super Mario Theme Performed By Floppy Drives
December 29, 2011
There isn't much demand for the old fashioned 3.5" floppy disk drive anymore in our world of Wi-Fi, flash drives, and CD-Rs. 1.44 MB won't even hold a single song or high resolution photograph these days. What can you do with a floppy drive now, let alone eight of them? If you're sh4dowww90, then you wire them up in such a way as to coordinate their inner workings to grind melodically in order to produce the classic overworld theme from Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. Have a listen as obsolete hardware gets one more moment in the spotlight. Up next: a dial-up modem squeals the theme from The Legend of Zelda.
