Datainer Modular Storage Device Organizer: Storage for Storage
February 19th, 2014
Where do you store your extra hard drives? In boxes? In a drawer somewhere? How about your flash drives and SD cards? If you’re having trouble tracking or protecting your storage devices, check out Datainer. Designed by Burkhard Bürgerhoff, Datainer is a family of drawers and cases that makes it easier to store, organize and transport hard drives, memory cards and flash drives.
You can see Datainer’s modules displayed in the image above. Starting from the part numbered “1”, there’s a drawer for 3.5″ drives, a mobile version of the 3.5″ drawer, a non-slip base mat, a compartment with room for two 2.5″ drives, a compartment with 35 slots for flash cards such as CF cards and SD cards and a general purpose drawer for storing thumb drives and other doodads.
As you can see the drawers all fit in a stackable case. In addition, each drawer has a slot in front where you can place a label or sticker.
Burkhard also designed a USB 3.0 dock and an open-ended version of the 3.5″ drawer that lets you clone drives without taking them out of the drawer.
Pledge at least $25 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a set of Datainer drawers as a reward. I’m assuming Burkhard will also make each piece available separately once they go on sale.
