Remember floppy disks?  They came in two sizes: 3.5″ and 5.25″ and stored not much more data than the size of a single MP3.  It was never a question of if, but when they’d meet their official demise, which believe it or not wasn’t too long ago.

Nick Gentry, though, has found a use for the defunct tech by creating mosaics.  Well, sort of mosaics – he uses the floppy disks as a canvas and incorporates parts of the label and mechanical parts of the disks into his work.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
