The Floppotron: Smells Like Nerd Spirit

Meet The Floppotron, an orchestra of 64 floppy drives, 8 HDD’s, an Arduino and more. Put together by hacker Paweł Zadrożniak, he constructed the sophisticated machine to play Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

The way that it works, in essence, is that the speed of the floppy disks’ motor heads are automated using a Python application. At higher speeds, the motors produce higher frequencies, and vice versa.

We can’t imagine the time it must have taken to put this all together! Watch his Floppotron rendition of the famous “Imperial March” from Star Wars.
