Wow, is that just a bizarre coincidence that an SD card fits into that space? 3.5” floppies seemed magical to me when I first used one on a “Fat Mac” in 1984. It was “fat” because instead of the stock 128K RAM of the original Macintosh, it had a whopping....512K! (Yes, that’s K as in Kilobytes :) And, if you recall the original Star Trek series, they used “tapes” that looked eerily like the 3.5” case that appeared 20 years later. The 8-bit Guy has a great episode on esoteric magnetic & optical media.
