Labbox

A tool to run lab experiments everywhere

Labbox is a portable platform which allows the development and running of economic lab experiments in a wide range of settings. It allows you to take all the necessary equipment in just a hand luggage suitcase: it’s a lab that fits in a box.

The server runs on a laptop and regular tablets (e.g. Android) or laptops can be used as clients. A wired or wireless network can be used to connect them together. No access to the internet is necessary.

The platform is based on HTML, Javascript and PHP, which allows for easy and straightforward development and debugging.

A demonstration of the platform can be found here.

The platform is currently still under development. At this point the software is not mature enough to be made available to external researchers. However, I am currently using the software for my own work as well as for collaborations. Please get in touch with me if you are interested.
