Laptop desk made from 82 floppy disks. Design allows airflow. Easy and dorky project! : - )
<p>This is awesome! I want one!</p><p>If you have 5 more floppy discs, you could install a cup holder onto the side! :D</p>
Great impressive slideshow!<br /> I built my own with cooling fans:<br /> <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/floppy-laptop-standcooler/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/floppy-laptop-standcooler/</a><br />
where can I get that many floppies at? how about cutting the slides out and arranging them for fans to pull heat out back or sides, Great indie
I'm old so I had a lot of floppies around. So did my parents. <br>Yes, scratchr contributor added a fan. <br>Great idea. Thanks! : )
nice idea :) mabye now i know what i can do with all my floppy disks
Thank you! : )
how much weight do you think that beast can hold? I want to make one for my tv lol I guess i could use like some sort of super awesome glue and reinforce all the triangles and especially the legs eh
By scrapping the legs, and making a single layer that sits on an already established flat surface, you could conceivably stand a TV on top--it would certainly enhance ventilation.
&nbsp;Thanks for the comment. I don't think it would support the weight of a TV.
Thanks for the comment. The desk will hold around 10 lbs. Sorry, it probably won't hold a large TV. Adding stronger glue would not help but adding reinforcing triangles would. The trade-off would be a bulkier piece. Good luck! : )
Poor floppy disks.

Simple but a really good use of spare (outdated?) hardware. Plus is exactly what the slideshow format is right for. Excellent!
Thank you! : )
