Hard Drive recycled into bike

Posted by TurtleGirl On December - 11 - 2009

There’s not much you can do to recover a hard drive that’s died on you, unless you want to revive it in the freezer for a little bit. Miguel Rivera, a systems administrator, took a pile of used drives, gutted some and turned them into beautiful sculptures.

 
“The overall concept was to make something out of just hard drive parts and pieces,” says Rivera. “I wanted it to look solid and heavy so I leaned towards just using metal — no plastic or gluing things together.”

 
His first sculpture was made out of a 3.5 harddrive into a car and from then he kept creating more and more items from hard drives. He’s second sculpture took 29 hard drives, but all in all it’s very amazing
