These are the heads that came out of the seagate laptop hard drive. They are supposed to be perfectly straight, but as you can see they are curved and stretched out like a rubber band. The heads are damaged, but the platters are fine. With new parts we can rebuild this hard drive in our clean room and recover the data.
