3.5 inch floppy disks are just a nostalgic memory for some, and not even a blip on the radar for the kids out there. But back in the old days of computing, floppies were the primary way to transfer bits of data and programs between computers. We were intrigued by Antrepo Design Industry’s (who’s Time Tuner Clock we featured yesterday) humorous poster graphic that visualizes just how many floppy discs it would take to handle today’s computer programs. The image is a striking reminder of the rapid rate at which technology has advanced, and compressed physically. The poster set will be available soon at Antreposhop.com.

Antrepo explain the project:

This poster set is about our old friends, 3.5 inch floppy disks.Higher density drives are built to read, write and even format lower density media without problems, provided the correct media are used for the density selected. This Posters shows, how many floppies are enough for current softwares.

Result (Approximate)
46 disk for iTunes 8.02
358 disk for Adobe Photoshop CS4
1760 disk for the Sims 3
12 disk for Firefox 3, 36 disk for Firefox Add-ons
