What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

As you may already know, Diskio Pi will be designed in France. The following companies responded favorably to the call for tender. They and Diskio will be work together to create version 1.0.

Diskio Pi’s electronic design office will be Advansee, based in Nantes, near the Atlantic ocean. This company has considerable experience in embedded electronics.

CD-Plast will be the plastics processing design office. The engineers will keep the general appearance of the existing prototype and make design plans compatible with plastic injection. This company is based in La-Roche-sur-Yon, near Nantes.

CD-Plast interview: "The work is 80% done"

The injection plant will be a Breton company.

All other electronic components will be supplied from China.


- Does all the parts of the tablet are Open-Source ?

Yes, the electronics and the case. We will propose some 3D files to download, for people who want to print the case, or a new rack. Some specials racks will be available: "Up-board" compatibility for example.
About the electronics, all the plans & datasheets will be online, and a lot of headers will be available on the board to add your modules.

- Can I buy only the electronics without the case ?

At this stage of the project, this is not planned. The reason is, that many people don't have a 3D printer, and the funding has for purpose to build the molds, which are very expensive.

- Can I replace some parts in the future ?

Yes, of course ! This is the first goal. In the future, we have planned to propose different models of internal boards, with keeping the case and the screen. Maybe a compatibility with SSD M2, or USB 3.0.
Same for the case, some new models may be proposed (IP64, IP67...), if the demand exists.

- Does the material will be sustainable in time ?

We try to choose the hardware with the best ratio quality/price. For example, for now the IPS technology for the screen panel is standard. But in a few years, the exact model can disappear from the market. That's why some new brackets will be delivered with the new reference.

- Does the tools include in the kit ?

In the kit, you will find all the parts to build the tablet, including double sided tape for the screen, the screws etc. The screwdriver or the precision pliers are not included in the kit.

- Does Windows IOT for Raspberry Pi will work?

Yes. All systems can be installed, if it is compatible with the SBC you have chosen.

- Does the principal board will be programmable?

Yes. The board will be equiped of a USB header, so you can upload your new firmware, like an Arduino.
The original screen's firmware will be available on the website, and some updates will be available to add some new functionalities (low battery warning for example). 

- Why does the board include all the functionalities, and not separates modules?

The manufacturing cost. Each PCB is a cost to manufacture, and to reduce the price, only two PCB will be designed. So, no connector is needed.

- Does the official Rasperry Pi camera included in the pack ? 

No, the camera is not included.

- Can I plug an Arduino ?

Of course! You can also use the compartment (5 cm x 3 cm) in the case to integrate your Arduino mini, or another USB device.

- What is the weight of Diskio Pi ?

The prototype is 1,8 Kg, or 2.2 lbs.

- Does Diskio Pi is garanteed against manufacturing defect ?

The standard one year warranty will be offered for workmanship flaws.

Many people contributed to this project, I want to thank them all very much:

Translations: Marine Claeys & Michael Laugier (BeWording) 

Video maker: Arthur Claisse (arthurclaissevideo)

3D printing: Christophe Deganne (3ZYX)

Electronic engineer: Nicolas Macé (Mace Robotics)

Web Developer: Nicolas Martin

... and all the others, who will recognize themselves ! ;) 

Also, thank you very much to you, future Diskio Pi user, for the faith that you put in us !

Risks and challenges

The main challenge will be to deliver the tablet for February 2018. To do this, I must coordinate as closely as possible the companies involved in this project, while not losing sight of the expected quality.
The purchase of items in China will be done after verification of all European and American standards.
