1/ About me

As far as I can remember I always wanted to be an engineer. For the greater good.

In the aftermath of the bankruptcy of my start-up Archimej Technology (Avril 2012 - May 2017 - RIP), I started having some doubts.
When developing an hardware-based 'disruptive' technology, was it really a good strategy to keep secrets and file patents?
Were they other startegies?
~FabLab mouvments - Open Source Hardware - Crowdsourcing - Can one fund a project that maximises 'Value for Many' before 'Value for Money'?

I jumped into the FabAcademy a little bit late. I will be able to dedicate 3 full days per week on the FabAcademy.

HTML and GIT on-the-command-line are new to me. But fortunately I have advance knowleges in CAD, DIY SMD PCB and EDA. I should be back on track by the end of February...

2/ What I do, and Why the FabAcademy?

Tribute to Impact engineering & Frugal (ie: more with less for more) scientific instrumentation. How they can change the world.

Personal project: Portable blood analyzer @ 1 Euro per light blood panel

Photonic FabLab projects: Low-cost compact IR spectrometer for sorting plastic - Hacking of scrap computer for DIY lab gear - ? Robot arm ?

I join the FabAcademy to go back to basics on digitally controlled fabrication; and learn how to crowdsource engineering.

3/ Final Project (Work in progress)

Story and insight of the Beta-BioLED project

Gamma project: Blood_Analysis_from_BetaBioled_to_Gamma.pdf

A goal is a dream with a deadline. FabAcademy project: Portable, Super-accurate (ppm?) optical spectrometer with a BOM < 100 Euro
