Remember the good old floppy diskettes? Some of you don't, but jewelry maker Oxx-An Alleweireldt sure wanted to bring the 80s back.

The designer developed Floppy diskette bracelets that look as ugly as they sound. I am sure they are going to be a hit because these days, what's not cool is cool, and what's geeky is actually hot. I know, it's a bit complex.

Anyways, the bracelet comes in the form of a big floppy disc with flowers sewn onto cotton arm bands.

You know what's crazy? Each floppy disc bracelet is sold for $110, and $87 for the smaller version! Oh come on! Is this a joke? Stats for Floppy Disk Bracelets Trending: Older & Chilly
