We might one day live in a world where everyday electronics can fend for themselves against household disasters but, for the time being, we can only marvel at one of a kind projects like this "Floppy Legs" drive from British design team Chambers Judd. As you can probably surmise, they've added some legs to an otherwise ordinary external floppy drive, which remain concealed most of the time, but spring to life if there's liquid spilled near the drive. Head on past the break to see that amazing feat for yourself, and be sure to take a peek at some of the team's earlier projects as well, including the Gesundheit Radio that "sneezes" to clear away dust.
