I am Ahmet Vural, one of the founders of Chagan technology (formerly AVI Labs). I have been working for the Ministry of National Education for more than 14 years and I have been working with a great effort to educate both children and young people. I teach basic electronics, programming languages and coding. I wrote and published books on programming resources. Now, I am 39 years old and I have two kids but I want to admit that I still love comics, anime, video games, interesting gadgets and books especially sci-fi. I think that makes me some kind of nerd and geek. And my dear wife Naime is a talented textile designer who helped me most with this design project
And at the same time, I try to design innovative gadgets in our small design studio. I love designing and making something innovative. I am an active member of makers community in my city.
I've always loved reading books and dreaming. I remember having spent hours daydreaming with a paper ship model under a blanket after reading Jules Verne's novel "Two Years’ Vacation" for the first time when I was a little kid.
For this reason, the idea of Liber Multitools comes from my desire for reading. I was using wood or 3d printed ABS thumb rings/page holders while I was reading. I started thinking to design something new on a page holder, a multifunctional tool for me, a maker, a book lover and a geek. I started to design and created posts on EDC and Multitools subreddit at reddit to share the idea. To be honest, I was afraid of negative comments and reactions but on the contrary, I got some nice suggestions and support. I refined the designs with the aid of fellow redditers. The main idea of reading multitools transformed into a design project to create tools, toys, and gadgets for us after two months from the start.
After a couple months, I designed two multitools, a fancy magnifier, a desktop orrery toy and a carabiner in the scope of Liber Multitools project. You can follow Liber tools' adventure from Liber Multittols Web. I am spending most of my free time to finish "Sol" nowadays. "Sol" is a kinetic desk toy with a lot of gears inside, also it is an orrery to simulating our solar system.
