This is a good development. I wondered when this hardware would be turned into a full product. But why is it named after sticky desert?

Also your links don't link.

I've seen a small floppy version in a video on Rob Smith's site. This looks small and compact. The Waffle looks like an Amiga drive.

So it needs a custom driver and program on Windows. This will need more work then. This is fine for protected and non-standard floppies. But I think a transparent driver that mounts an Amiga floppy is needed.

You can plug a USB floppy into a computer running Windows, Linux or AmigaOS4 and it mounts. Plug and play.

This would be good to have support for AmigaOS 68K, AmigaOS4, MorphOS and so on. That's the nest step.

I don't think it should be posted under 'hardware OS4 ', it's not an AOS4 device, well it can be connected via USB but there are no drivers for AOS4
