I don’t care that it’s Star Wars oriented – playing music with a floppy drive is awesome. Can we top that? Wouldn’t know how to measure it, but click through to hear the floppy drive, a singing scanner and a whole band played with a HDD.
William’s “Imperial March” With a Floppy Drive
Beethoven’s “Für Elise” With a Scanner
Vivaldi’s “Spring” With a Scanner
Van Halen’s “Jump” With a HDD
This last one is crazy.
. Edit: The arm’s vibration is used in a similar fashion as a conventional speaker is. No idea how it’s pulled off (is it real?)
UPDATE – Dec. 2010. Regrettably, the following video has been pulled from YouTube by Time Warner on grounds of copyright infringement.
Enslaved by whatever law-induced social conduct superseding rationality—the action demonstrates lack of respect for innovation; for fans’ tribute to the music they love.
My thanks to the reader that brought this to my attention.
