Lawn roller

bugnas_no_no

This is an old magnetic drum used as a lawn roller by my dad in his garden. The drum is a remnant from BESM-6 (or BESM-4?) mainframe computer from Soviet times, somewhere around 1970s. The capacity of the drum was 192 Kb. The jeep in the background should serve for getting the feel about the size of the thing :). Hail Moore’s law!

Some links about BESM-6: on Wikipedia; somewhere else.
