old computer parts used for movie props

Recommended Posts

I was watching a old Star Trek: The Next Generation, specifically the episode called 'A fistful of datas'.

 

at the beginning I noticed a move prop and it has 3 face plates from 5.25 floppy drives.

 

What else is out there I wonder that parts have been used to create something else.

From 1989's The Terror Within. Was shown on Comet last month, when I caught our beloved TI being used as a prop!

With high definition or even 4K TV's and monster sized screens that kind of stuff will be much harder to get away with from now on.  At least they can use their imagination and 3D print something original now days.

Yes, 5 1/4" Floppy drives, were a nearly essential component in most plans for world domination in the mid '80s.:ponder:

We are Borg. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. Insert disk two to commence assimilation.
