Remember those wooden Jacob’s Ladder toys you played with when you were a kid? You know, the kind where you flip the top block over, and then all of the other clacky blocks flip over on themselves?  Here’s a clever modern take on the old wooden toy.

Created by artist ZacharyBear, this Jacob’s Ladder is made from a bunch of old 3.5-inch floppy disks, woven together to create this perplexing, noisy plaything. Check out the video clip below to see this thing in action…

You can grab a set of these over on ZacharyBear’s Etsy shop for just $15 bucks. What’s the last time you really needed that set of Aldus Pagemaker 6.0 installer floppies anyhow?
