Ran across this today

 

http://www.wired.com/2014/08/man-builds-working-hard-drive-inside-minecraft/

 

for entertainment-only values of working:

 

"Although you can quibble about the exact definition of a hard drive, as opposed to some other form of persistent storage, you’ve got to admit that it’s impressive. But it’s not exactly practical. Because of the difficulty in transferring a file from your hard drive in the game world of Minecraft, you’d actually have to manually enter each byte of data into the drive by hand. And the seek time—the amount of time it takes to find the data that you want to retrieve from the disk—is between six and seven minutes. But that’s beside the point. Littley didn’t build the drive to be practical."

 

still pretty cool ;)
