Musical Floppy Drives

idea by marshal808

Describe your creation.


I used a micro-controller and 3 floppy-drives to create this project. the micro-controller used a .MIDI file to step the heads of the floppy drives at different speeds to create a range of notes. 8 bit music works best for this. The song being played is Kirby's Theme, and yes i did take the video upside down :P

I've seen his six floppy version he made after this..the harmony is unreal. I'm still not sure exactly how he did it. Stairway to heaven on six drives is awesome.
