It looks like this: http://junk.kegetys.net/xzy/quantum_clock.jpg
I have seen similar clocks made so that the platters are visible and the clock hands are made out of the read heads. That way it looks better, mine is just quick hack job out of clock parts I had lying around that happened to fit inside the drive casing
I have a wall clock made out of a Quantum Bigfoot drive, does that count as use?
Dedicated head trackers like TrackIR and Freetrack have allowed this for quite some time now.

This "window" effect only really works if you close one of your eyes though. In a video it looks good since you have no depth perception, but when you look at something like this with both eyes you constantly see that it is just a flat surface that is displaying a moving image and the wanted effect largely goes away.

The Toshiba Portege G900 came out in 2007 and it has a 311dpi display, same for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 in 2008. So in 3 years the increase is about 5%, not 25%.
> Bollocks. The X1 has a 3" display providing 800*480 pixels. 800/3 = 267ppi.
The 3" is the diagonal size, therefore:
sqrt((800^2) + (480^2)) / 3 = ~311
