  1. My grandpa brought one of the platters from one of these home from work when my mom was a kid… she now uses it as a lawn ornament. :)

  2. You are wrong, assuming this would be a fixed disk. This is the magnetic drum storage of the Zuse Z22. This was the first really programmable computer. It was installed at the Technical Highscool at Karlsruhe, Germany. I worked on this computer 1962 and used it for chemical analysis computing and math problems. One of it is published in the book "Algol Praktikum" of Prof.Nickel.
