Unifile Twiggy floppy drive
Created in 1983, the Unifile Twiggy floppy drive was an innovative double-sided drive that had heads on opposite sides of the spindle. The Twiggy disks offered an extremely large capacity of over 800K.
Though the Unifile was announced by Apple, the program was canceled before it ever shipped. It was intended to Apple II and Apple III computers, but the Twiggy drive was only ever used in the Lisa I. Many of the drives were made, but then the product was canned and most of the units were destroyed.
