I made this USB flash diskette a couple of months ago after salvaging floppy disks for garbage from our school's computer laboratory. I wasn't really sure what to do with it, but I got a feeling of saving them for later. Maybe I could make a lampshade out of it or just anything if I have free time.

So one morning, while spacing out looking at the clouds outside, desperately accomplishing paper works at the office, I happen to see some of these USB flash drives lying around, waiting to be found. And there I had this idea of trying out USB flash diskette I stumbled upon the previous weeks on CNET, while searching for ways to recycle old technologies.

I just love the idea of integrating old and new technologies the reason why I really wanted to try out this USB flash diskette


1) Floppy Disks / Diskettes - I'm pretty certain you'll be able to find the following in school or establishments even at the office storage room.
2) USB Flash Drive - As much as possible, try to acquire an empty and old USB flash drive that does not contain any important files just to be sure in case you messed it up during the dismantling.
3) Precision Screwdriver Sets - For dismantling the flash drive.
4) Other materials like cutter and electrical tape.
