Hard drives quit their day job to pursue new life as a speaker system

We know what you're thinking, why would you ever turn two decent hard disk drives into tinny speakers when it's much more logical to use them as storage and buying cheap speakers instead... but if you're the kind of mad scientist who likes to see doohickeys function outside their intended use, or have friends who'd be really impressed or amused, you might want to consider recreating this classy speaker set complete with transparent glass case and the requisite blue lights. All the instructions lie beyond the read link, and if you're not quite convinced, we think the video after the break is likely to change your opinion for the better.
