Floppy Disk

Yoshiro Nakamatsu, inventor of the floppy disk, believed lack of oxygen helped him think and nearly drowned himself coming up with ideas.

In August 1997, a model of the Malaysian flag was completed, made out of 10,430 floppy disks. The country's deputy education minister described this as 'an event Malaysia can be proud of'.

Due to the limited technology of the 1980s, Tom Clancy's novel, The Hunt For Red October, had to be saved on ten floppy disks.

Some of America's nuclear arsenal still runs on 8 inch floppy disks.
