How we started

The Intranel founders met at the University of Canterbury while completing Electrical Engineering degrees. The first project they worked on together was an anti-crash and stabilisation system for model aircraft, with elements of hardware, software, and interfacing. They got on well enough to decide to continue building cool things together.
