You saw that correctly, a modder that goes by the name of Dr. Moddnstine has created a 128GB floppy drive out of an SD card and an old floppy disk reader. This is a part of his newly modded 1995 IBM Aptiva.
Dr. Moddnstine built a new computer gaming system from an original IBM Aptiva dated back from 1995. With all the memory upgraded parts, the only original part from the Aptiva is the case itself. The new system consists of a Micro ATX motherboard, IntelI7-6700K and AMD Radeon R8 390. Oh, and the massive floppy disk.
The 128GB floppy drive consists of two parts. The first part is the floppy disk that is slightly modified to allow a SD card to be tucked behind the sliding piece of the floppy disk. The floppy disk needed to be cut accordingly to fit the SD card. The final part of the 128GB floppy drive is the reader, which is wired and soldered together with a USB 3.0 adapter, to allow faster transfer speeds.
The 128GB floppy is only a small component to the complete IBM Aptiva build. The process of wiring and soldering was a very intricate process and wasn’t an easy task at hand for Dr. Moddstine. The mad modder created something that will certainly grab the attention of follow computer builders and have others trying to out build the modded 1995 IBM Aptiva.
