Diskio Pi

Another digital world is possible.

 
A new concept of hybrid machine, compatible with
Raspberry Pi and Odroid Nano PCs.
 
With or without touch screen ;)
 
  Pre-order now
   

Diskio Pi is a versatile touch device, including a full HD&IPS screen, a sound amp, a USB hub and a battery.

We offer the construction kits, you are the maker of your own terminal.

The computer board is not included in the kit.

 

A semi-DIY* device

*DIY: Do it yourself

 

Diskio Pi is perfect for building your own personalized terminal:

Diskio Pi has a great deal of functionalities and capabilities.
  • All-in-one solution for your favorite nano-pc
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi and Odroid
  • OS available: Linux or Android, according to the motherboard
  • No special image/iso needed:
  • - Raspbian, Ubuntu
    - NOOBS, Arch
    - Raspbmc, Retropie, Recalbox...
  • No proprietary special code
Diskio Pi can be used as a portable screen.
  • With this feature, any HDMI device can be displayed by this screen.
  • The touch screen will work via an external USB cable.
  • Of course, the HDMI sound will be available.
Diskio can be ordered without case, it's up to you to decide.
  • Download the STL files and print the parts yourself,
  • or choose another way to integrate the elements (wood, metal...).
Diskio Pi can also be used for home automation using many options:
  • Wall tablet soon available:
  • - VESA 75 support
    - POE+ Ethernet
  • Battery
  • Wifi with your own adapter
  • Etc.
Diskio Pi is also designed for educators who want a playful material for their schoolchild.
  • Easy to assemble
  • Easy to use
  • Lots of free education software (Scratch, Python-school...)
  • Open-source softwares and languages (HTML, Javascript, Python...)
  • IoT (internet of things) initiation with the GPIO use
  • Virtual or real keyboard, mouse or touchscreen...
At last, Diskio Pi is officially listed as Open Source Hardware by the OSHWA association.

The team

Guillaume:

I am the founder of 3DCRAN, the name of the company that sells Diskio Pi.
With passion, I develop a product that fights against the planned obsolescence, which meets the expectations of free users.
My profile and my technical capacities make me the CEO of 3DCRAN.

Nicolas:

Nicolas Macé manufactures robots based on the Raspberry Pi, he's the electronic engineer of the project.
His experience with these boards is very useful for Diskio Pi, he has been working on the project since the beginning.

F.A.Q

Since the very beginning of this project, three prototypes have been built, but it takes a lot of time and energy to build, submit and validate a prototype. With this third version, we are trying to develop a useful product, as cheap as possible, and compatible with many machines, without much funding.

- Does the product available now ?
The product is available (presale) on Ulule since january 2019 until March 1st 2019. Delivery November 2019.
After these deliveries, a shop will be set up for the presales.

- What is the price ?
The prices will be between 209€ and 305€ according to the options.

- What are the options ?
The options are the batteries and different boards. The basic offer will include the screen, the touch screen, the case (stand includes), the sound support, the power & hub board, and of course the screen support board.

- In the future, will it be possible to buy the replacement pieces ?
Of course. The concept is to propose a durable device, with a high repair rate.

- Is it possible to print the case by myself ?
Yes. You will need a large 3D printer (400x300mm), and the STL files are available on GitLab

- What is the link of the prototype's crowdfunding ?
You can find the page here.
