Timeline

Discovery of the Raspberry Pi
Several small server and multimedia player learning projects were performed.
First prototype
This model version 0.1 (17'') was built with an Orange Pi motherboard. Android or Debian are used freely.
Electronics and design study
A quotation of the study is now costed, and the feasibility studied. A prototype version 0.2 will be built.
Production and delivery
A second round of financing will be needed to raise funds for a small production run.
This was a creative period recovering laptop screens, and giving them a second life. My two secondary displays are from this recovery.
Combining a screen and nano-PC seemed a natural idea. It remained to find a tactile glass screen and fit out the system. The idea of ​​multi-board compatibility came next.
To optimize the electronic circuit, it is imperative that an engineer start everything from scratch to select reliable components, and design the daughterboard.
When the study and tests have been performed and validated, the next logical step will be to move to manufacturing, with delivery in kit form to reduce costs.

The founder

My name is Guillaume, I'm the founder of Diskio, the future company that will commercialize Diskio Pi. I was initially trained as an optician, and I worked in-store for ten years in Normandy and Paris, in France. So I learned the love of work well done, precision, and the sense of service.

After this direct selling period, I decided to give up this job in 2012 to go on a trip. I then bought a bike and went off to cross southern Europe, the Middle East and finally India. These six months have allowed me to make wonderful encounters, and see the world and life in a different light. On returning, I had no desire to resume my old job. Computers and hardware have always been a passion since my first Amstrad, followed by the Amiga 500. I learned Linux in the following years, and Raspberry Pi was a natural choice.
