I was just going through my boxes in the attic and found stacks of old 4GB, 20GB and 40GB hard drives. I don’t really know if they still work and do not care at all about the data in them. Should I donate these to charity, oh that would be a tongue-in-cheek deal. No use really for these old relics but the big garbage pile going to the dump.
Here’s a cool concept I found and all it takes are diamond screwdrivers and say about an hour of your time. An afternoon project probably with your 10 year old.
Windchimes using the your old hard disk platters! How cool is that. The finished product, I feel, is safe to be hooked up the backyard tree house. Or the old porch perhaps to give it a little digital feel? Try it out. Open those old useless hard drives and make an afternoon with your sons, memorable.
