Floppy Drive Disk Plays Horrible Star Wars Music!

Here’s a floppy disk that plays some really horrible Star Wars music.  Why!!!

I assume it’s a hardware hack that manually controls the floppy drive’s stepper motor, but it’d make my day if this was done in software using standard I/O requests. Either way, the 3.5 inch FDD finally serves an important function again.

    pretty cool 🙂

    I’ve seen people do something similar with the engines on F1 cars – by controlling the revs with a computer, you can get the engine to play all kinds of tunes.
