I, like many others, have been looking for solutions to expand storage on the Nexus 7. Chainfire's StickMount works well with USB keys, so I thought I would try it with something more oldschool:


Also seen running Keyboard,Mouse and USB flash drive through powered hub. Ultima is being run through Dosbox straight from the floppy.

Who needs a Transformer anyway?

ROTFL...never thought i'd see a floppy connected to a nexus...i'm surprised it didn't open a space-time vortex that's sucking us all in

OOh I know. Next you should tape it to the inside of a giant cardboard box (with cutouts for screen and floppy), lock it to terminal emulator, and you have an "old-computer" emulator

It's rooted, it's Paul from MoDaCo's MCR but any rooted rom should work.

Unfortunately, we threw out all our zip drives and disks a while back. It was mentioned as an option though.
Also, we did try a usb CD-ROM drive, but that wasn't playing ball (I would guess it does not register as a mass storage device at all)

Glad people like it. Despite the fun aspect, the whole setup (minus floppy) really is a pretty usable netbook/nettop level experience.

Would love to see a pogo pin dock so I could keep it charged, it is currently balancing on the front of a Dilbert calendar!
