Cool Videos: Old disk drives play the Star Wars Imperial March
Floppy disk drives may be better known for the unnerving noises that accompany data access more than their storage capacity (in the pre-CD days, I can recall some programs and games arriving on a dozen or more diskettes).
But someone found a perfect use for this outdated technology -- somehow synching the timing and pitch on a pair of 3.5" drives to buzz and crunch out a surprisingly good low-tech rendition of the familiar "Imperial March" theme from STAR WARS. While I find the lack of SSD disturbing, the Force is clearly strong with this one.
