Open Device Lab
The Foolproof Open Device Lab exists to support our local creative community to test their work on an ever-growing range of mobile devices
About the Device Lab
If you build responsive, adaptive and mobile web experiences, or native applications, you need to test your work on more than just a handful of mobile, tablet and console devices lying around your office.
Emulators and remote access tools are no match for getting your hands on the broad range of physical devices that your customers use from day-to-day. To test the speed, interactivity and rendering performance of your application or site you need a range of real handsets.
This is why we have an Open Device Lab. It is a library of devices that designers, developers and researchers can use to design compelling experiences.
Use the lab
The Foolproof Open Device Lab is open to everyone and is located in Foolproof’s London offices in Clerkenwell. Our intention is to offer the service free as a community asset. If you camp out for long periods of time we may need to have a little chat about making a contribution for usage and drinking our coffee. To visit the lab, send us an email a couple of days beforehand and we’ll get things ready for you.

Donate your devices
If you’ve got an unwanted or under-utilised device lying around gathering dust please add it to the collection and get it back into use.
Email us to contribute an old device
Become a sponsor
If you’re a device manufacturer, carrier network or reseller, we’d love to have your help. The Foolproof Open Device Lab exists to help designers and developers create and optimise experiences for your devices and therefore your customers. You could donate or sponsor a device, or help fund the service to keep it free.
