I'm assuming anything can be interfaced to old tech. But if I had Twiggys I do have a Lisa they could go into. Or I'd just sell them and buy something a lot more useful. :)
What'd be cool if replicas could be made somehow. I don't know what all goes into a disk drive but I imagine it's in the realm of possibility at least.

If you had a pair of Twiggys, but no Lisa, could you create a USB interface to use them on a modern machine?
