3D Printed MicroSD Reader Poses as Micro Atari 810 Floppy Drive

There’s something so forgettable about microSD readers. That’s why I think that this little hack is awesome. It makes a microSD card reader look like a tiny Atari 810 Floppy drive. Rossum made this miniature using a 3D printer, which is even cooler in my opinion.

I like the tribute to the Atari 810, and from the schematics and what Rossum posted, it doesn’t look too complicated to make your own. The best part is that the 3D printing was done off-site thanks to Shapeways, meaning that you don’t need a 3D printer in your home to do this.

Not only does the drive look just like the original, he’s actually hacked it to work with an actual Atari computer as a data source, loading it up with Atari disk images and applications.
