Yesterday, we had floppy disk posters, before Christmas we had floppy disk gift tags, today we’ve got floppy disk CD-Rs. Evidently the humble 3.5″ floppy, subject of much mockery in the school playground, is now the coolest kid on the block.
Sure, they only hold 200MB of data (though that’s 13789% more than the originals) and they’re a little on the expensive side – at $10 (£7) a CD, but you can’t put a price on retro-cool, right? Right? What do you mean “28p and a blackjack”?

You load in any MP3 you like, and from the waveform of the song, it generates a course which you race along picking up and matching coloured blocks. The fast, loud bits of the song are downhill, the slow, quieter bits are uphill. I’ve embedded a video of the gameplay over the jump, to help you get it…
Better add this to your wish list, unless Roman Abramovich is reading Tech Digest again, in which case I’m willing to bet he’s got one of these SIM2 projectors in every room.
Rolling in at a cost of a mere £9,999 each, the HT3000E delivers 1080p resolution, renders one billion colours and can project up to 30ft. It’s apparently the only ‘full’ hi-def projector which offers that BrilliantColor…
