Rover I portable: Does it exist?

I recently read about an intresting old portable (luggable?) called the
Rover I. This is an intresting machine because instead of using floppy
drives like most portables, it uses wafertape drives (now *there's* a
storage system that never really took off, but I have heard that they were
reasonably popular on TRaSh-80's.)

My question: What is it? Does it exist? Was it ever released?
