(Let's see if this Diaspora thing works.)

I made a #retrocomputing thing! The FluxEngine won't let you travel in time, except metaphorically, but it is a $15 #floppy disk drive controller made from an off-the-shelf #PSoC5 microcontroller board with 17 header pins soldered on. Literally, there are no other components.

It will let you image and rewrite floppy disks from a modern PC via USB. It works with the raw magnetic disk flux using PC-side processing for encoding and decoding, so it theoretically supports any disk format where the tracks are in the right place. So far I've made it work with conventional IBM PC disks, Acorn ADFS and DFS disks, and weird Brother word processor GCR disks which are almost entirely unreadable otherwise. It's completely open source and on Github.

And, hopefully, Diaspora will show you an image of one via the link preview below.
