I remember using five (yes, five) floppy disks to install Doom II onto my bitchin’ 386 processor desktop that stuttered and hung when I tried to run The 7th Guest. Seriously, that machine was the pinnacle of technology when I was 7 years old. No kid on the block was cooler than myself (well, in my own head, at least).
But now what can you do with floppy drives? Well, YouTube user MrSolidSnake745 has found a use. He has taken several floppy drives and covered Daft Punk‘s “Aerodynamic”, which comes from their 2001 Discovery album. It’s pretty awesome and definitely a better use of the machinery than what they’re meant for (what can you even save on a floppy disk these days?). Check it out below!
Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories will be released May 21st in N. America.
