Recycle platters from modern hard disks

They are smaller but spin way faster. But when an hard disk dies, I meticulously open it, recover the platters and the magnets. I am not sure what I will do with the magnets, but I plan to build a nice mobile out f them: they are shiny and should sound very clearly when they hit eachother.
