    Floppotron

    We love a quirky cover and this vintage '80s computer hardware orchestra is crunching them out in droves. 

    Dubbed the Floppotron and built out of old floppy disk drives, hard drives, scanners and a series of motors, all clicking their ways into our hearts, the Floppotron has covered a ton of classic tunes, including Green Day's Wake Me Up When September Ends, Blur's Song 2, Gorillaz' Feel Good Inc, the theme song from Friends, Linkin Park's Numb, Luis Fonsi's Despacito, Daft Punk's Harder Better Faster Stronger and Smash Mouth's All Star. 

    And for those who are actually old enough to have used some of the gear in the Floppotron, it has also covered '80s classics like Africa, Tainted Love, Bohemian Rhapsody, Thriller, Paradise City and more.

    And if you're wondering how the hell it all works, it's run through software written by the Floppotron's engineer creator Pawe Zadroniak. 

    It's all a bit of nerdy fun - check out some of our favourites below!
