One month ago, my floppy drive music with a calculator project accrued widespread internet attention, with the video reaching 45,000 views and over 100 likes in a month, and the project featured on Hack a Day, Engadget, and many other sites. Since then, the plans have been frequently requested, though unlike other projects of mine, I unfortunately did not have the hardware plans and software packaged for release when I announced the project itself. I have finally found time after final exams and other factors in my life to write up a brief explanation and draw the schematic for the project, as well as package and publish the necessary software. You can explore the construction plans and download the software at the links below, and if you haven't already seen the video, click through and enjoy!
