We owned an Atari 800, when I was a kid, and also owned the full-size original version of this drive, as I recall. Rossum built this tiny simulacrum around an MicroSD drive that uses 8 GB cards. The case is a 3D print from Shapeways. [via Boing Boing]

    Makes me think that it would be interesting to have a whole line miniaturized classic computers. Maybe 1/8th scale systems. Apple, Atari, Commodores and Tandys!
