Oh the floppy disk, how we miss your fun, vibrant colors. Don't tell me you've forgotten about them? Of course, not. Oregon Trail was played on some of these suckers. Despite being considered quite dated in our standards, some of us still have these guys laying around our house, just asking for some kind of DIY project.

Minimahuella is a Buenos-Aires based company specializing in design solutions centering around recycled products. You can grab this and other cool stuff like light bulb planters over on their site.
