That's the plan … and with Cambridge's reputation in science, technology and entrepreneurship there's a real opportunity to make the Cambridge Open Device Lab (CambODL) one of the best resources in the world.
Originally set up to help other developers get free access to a large number of devices for testing in one location, CambODL is now reaching out to digital agencies, businesses and colleges around Cambridge to help create a network of device labs. Not only for use by developers, but students, scientists and businesses alike.

Individuals can help out too, by donating old devices, funds or otherwise helping the ODL.
Are you a company or college able to set up your own device lab and be willing to open it up to everyone? Then I want to hear from you – because your awesome!
