What happens when you spill a full cup of coffee under your old Apple 5-1/4″ floppy drive? I’d expect it to either damage the mechanism, or at least make a mess you had to wipe off the bottom of the drive.

Well if you think like the guys at Chambers Judd, you might imagine it doing something like this…

Yep, that’s right, this particular floppy drive sprouts legs to avoid spills. Floppy Legs is one of several creations of their fictitious “Attenborough Design Group”, which takes concepts found in nature to create products which automatically defend themselves from everyday threats. You can check out more of their wacky creations here.
