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 first 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.

The founder

My name is Guillaume Debray, the founder of Diskio. 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.

With passion, I develop a product that fights against the planned obsolescence, which meets the expectations of free users.
