8" Floppy Project

Personally, I'm becoming convinced that we need a USB to floppy "device,
configurable for 8", 5.25" and 3.5" drives, single/double/quad density,
single/double sided, with suitable software (of course). Perhaps separate
slightly separate devices are needed for different drive types (e.g. 8" vs.
5.25"). And preferably capable of supporting two drives.

I took apart a USB 3.5" drive hoping that it was a standard 3.5" drive
(34-conductor interface) with a USB "controller". Alas, however, it was a
"fully integrated" device.

Anyone interested in tackling the USB adapter project? It's beyond my
capabilities at this point.
