An orchestra of floppy drives makes beautiful music. No lie.


There's nothing like the sweet, melodic screech/clunk of a floppy disk loading up.

So how do you make your own James Bond music video with floppy disks? Easy!

All you need is a an Arduino, a few floppy drives and some cables going between the pins of the floppies and your Arduino.

Ok, that is not quite all. You also need some code. You can find a word doc on the YouTube page explaining everything.

Or you can just watch this video explanation. 

After you've mastered the art of floppy music making, let us know! Create something amazing and we'll feature it here.
