It's a hard disk drive  back in 1956... with 5 MB of storage. 

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the  first 'SUPER' computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD  weighed over a ton and stored a 'whopping' 5  MB of data.  Yes... 5 MEGA bytes. Back then,,,this was da shit.

Do you appreciate your  8 GB memory stick a little more now?
