Mikey Sklar has put together an interesting wallet, it is made out of hard drive platters. As you know we have a soft spot for anything made from Hard Drives here at Hacked Gadgets.

“I took apart a dead hard drive that I had dumpster dived last year initially for the magnets, but I could not take my eyes off of the platters. The magnet would just be trouble with my ATM card magnetic strips as well as sticking to everything else around. Using a rivet gun I was able to quickly adhere two car keys and my AAA card to the platters.”

    Be careful! Some hard drive platters are made out of ceramic and just explode like glass when bent or cut. I found this out the hard way. Thousands of sharp mirror like shards all over me and my workshop! It was horrible. I still cannot tell the difference between platters, so be careful!

    Hey Paul,

    That reminds me of an episode of the Screen Savers where Patrick Norton is talking about ways of destroying data on a drive. He opens the drive and smashes it with a hammer. The platters were not metal, they were ceramic and shattered into thousands of pieces on the TV set…

    That was the first time I had heard about ceramic platters (and I think that was the first time Patrick also found out about them).

    Is that key to an old mercedes-benz? Sure looks like one I had. I would bet a nickel it is.

    I might notice when you drill the holes, but it’s the first I’ve heard of them
