Watch 64 floppy drives and other hardware play the Star Wars theme

Watching assorted junk hardware play music has been a weirdly popular, weirdly good internet phenomenon for some time now — on the order of, say, videos of the red hot ball of nickel being placed on things.

The latest entry in the genre: John Williams' Star Wars theme, played by machines from YouTube maestro Paweł Zadrożniak. The video says the "Floppotron 2.0" includes 64 floppy drives, along with plenty of other stuff. If you're into that, this week he also shared videos of the Floppotron playing the Hawaii Five-O theme and Smells Like Teen Spirit. A streaming playlist is not immediately available, but also seems inevitable.
