Chances are you’ll have a few old floppies hanging around from the early 2000s, but I doubt you’ll be using them for storing data bytes. Average floppies hold a not-so-incredible 1.44 MB – that’s about 2 large pictures or half of a short song.
However, they do have more value as iconic pieces of geek culture. Besides their obvious potential as equipment in games of office Frisbee, we have come up with a few cunning ideas for re-purposing them. My favourite is the highly desirable floppy disk hand bag.
