So, We've Shrunk a Storinator...

Ok, so we didn't actually put it in the dryer,  and no, unfortunately, Rick Moranis was not involved either — but it has been shrunk. So we give you, The Storinator Jr! 

This little project started when Jeff Geerling’s work with Raspberry Pi-based mini storage systems inspired one of our 45Drives R&D Engineers, Josh Boudreau.  So, he started a pet project. 

Through some love and elbow grease, Josh brought this mini Storinator prototype to life. However, it wasn’t without its challenges.

Want to know more about this project? Stay tuned — we have an interview with Josh coming your way in next week's Direct Wire.
