Floppy disk drives have mostly disappeared now, though floppy disks themselves still exist. They have a way of nestling in disorganized places like closets, dusty but probably functional if you happen to have an ‘ancient’ computer. If not, they’re also perfect for upcycling. Besides being colorful and nostalgic, their thinness and solid shape make them versatile objects to experiment with.
