Actually I have an old HDD platter somewhere in the shed, its a MONSTER, will post a photo if I can find it.

Still, an interesting little thing, historically speaking.

I remember we used to have a "Bag of laughs" which when you pressed it, it played a short record of over-the-top laughing, and used this exact same concept
