Retro-Shaped CDR: Looks Like a Floppy!

While these CDRs look pretty cool, their usefulness might not be that great since they obviously can’t contain that much data, however they’ll be loved by everyone who enjoys retro computer gear, like floppy disks, tape drives, Commodore and Atari computers, etc.

These CDRs were created by Monkey Business and they are for people who are nostalgic about the 3.5″ floppy drive disks. The whole disk is shaped like a floppy disk, and you can insert it directly into your optical bay. These disks lose a lot of storage, so they can only contain 200MB, but what they lack in size they make up in style.

The only question I have is about CDRs. Does anyone still buy them? Needless to say, we’ll need a DVD version as well! They can be ordered from Curiosite for $8.51.
