It’s been a while since my last post but it’s been all go here: I’ve been working on a toy I’ve dubbed The FluxEngine, which is a floppy disk controller based around a $15 (sometimes $10) off-the-shelf microcontroller with no additional parts. Literally, solder on 17 pins in a row and you’re done.

It’ll read and write IBM PC disks, Acorn disks (both ADFS and DFS), and ultra-exotic Brother word processor disks, because I have one.

It’s open source on GitHub and already one person other than me has built it and made it work.
