Simple electric motors

Simple electric motors

From the Russian site Zabatsay, some demonstration to build a simple electric motor, requires:
  1. A Single AA battery
  2. A couple of regular steel paper clips
  3. Some sticky tape
  4. Some enamelled copper wire or verowire
  5. A knife or scraper
I don't know why it works properly with a DC power supply and no brushes. 

I think it maybe to do with an irregularly formed coil so that the magnetic field is uneven and there can be an average force.

Raspberry Pi Virtual Floppy for ISA (PC XT/AT) Computers

Dr Scott M. Baker says: I was tired of carrying media back and forth to my homebuilt XT computer, so I used dual-ported RAM to build a virtual floppy replacement that serves floppy images up from a raspberry pi. A small BIOS extension loaded into the dual-ported RAM simulates a floppy disk drive. Requests are made by the ISA PC, and served by the raspberry pi.
