I have returned! My apologies for my rather lengthy absence from posting geeky things here on Global Geek News but today marks my return and I have some great thing coming up to share with you guys! But as for today’s post, I know I might be a day late since Halloween was yesterday but I just have to share this awesome video of the Ghostbusters theme played on floppy drives and hard drives among other old computer hardware.
It always blows my mind when I see old nerdy theme songs played on computer hardware from my childhood. In the past, I have posted several such videos including the Doctor Who theme played on floppy drives, the Star Trek: TNG theme played on floppy drives and the Imperial March played on a hard drive. And for those that have been around for a while, you might remember that I have shared a video of the Ghostbusters theme played on eight floppy drives several years ago. So why post another one? Because this one is FAR more impressive!
This amazing musical computer hardware setup was created by Paweł Zadrożniak and is called the Floppotron! It is made from 64 floppy drives, several hard drives and other hardware which I can’t identify but I am assuming its some sort of printer hardware. It is an impressive build to be sure and it does such an amazing job at recreating the Ghostbusters theme song that I would put it right up there with the original! Who would have thought that the Ghostbusters theme played on floppy drives and hard drives would sound this good!
Have you done anything insanely geeky like this? If so, let us know about it in the comments below!
