Open Device Lab Singapore
A free resource for the local community to test their work on an ever-growing range of mobile devices.
In a ’mobile first‘ world, it’s important to test how your websites and applications will work on different devices. However, this poses a problem: devices are expensive and there are many of them.
So we set up an Open Device Lab. It’s a growing library of devices such as smartphones and tablets, emerging technology (e.g. virtual reality), plus older mobile handsets.
Open Device Lab Singapore is part of the global movement of 142 Open Device Labs across 34 countries. This movement makes accessible nearly 4,000 devices to support the community in creating improved digital experiences.
Borrow a device
Anyone is welcome to borrow a device; we only ask that they stay in the studio. You’ll have access to Wi-Fi, coffee and a hot desk, or our research lab if it’s available.
We're located at Seah Street in Singapore, a short walk from City Hall MRT station. Office hours are 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday, except public holidays.
Please send an email a couple of days beforehand telling us which device as well as when and how long you need it, so we can be ready for you.
Donate your devices
The Open Device Lab is free of charge, so any donations from the community or sponsors would be really appreciated. If you have an unwanted or under-utilised device lying around, give it new purpose by adding it to our collection.
We also have a device lab in our London office.
