Floppy disk greeting cards

Here’s a craft project I could get into: turning all of those old 3.5″ floppy disks into turntables on greeting cards. Good way to wrap the ubiquitous iTunes Gift Card.

    I don’t get it.

    What’s that supposed to be?

      But for those of us who used to actually listen to LP’s, it’s supposed to be a record player. Nicely done too.

      I guess in a few years people will look at CD’s and ask what the shiny disc is.

    You should be able to use the head from a disk reader and actually record Audio onto the floppy disk. It’s just recording frequency instead of Data. Then when you spin the disk you’d get sound. Think of it as a circular tape machine.
