My Idle Hands

I'm a tad paranoid when my hard drives die. I just don't feel comfortable sending my platters to the landfill. This, combined with over fifteen years of computer usage, results in a stockpile of dead hard drives. What to do?

Well, if you have a Torx-8 bit and some inspiration, you end up with this:


(I'm going to assume it's a male). He's made of hard drive magnets - which are unbelievably strong and rather industrial looking. The tiny red eyes are also magnets from a hard drive as well.

I took the liberty of removing the platters from the casings. The ones I couldn't remove, I drilled.
