We incubate our most advanced projects into FOSS companies to support a sustainable FOSS Ecosystem.
Our teams are developing software to run events. We have Android apps to enhance photos or do scientific experiments. You can set up your own SUSI.AI personal assistant. Or, you use the Pocket Science Lab (PSLab) to measure just about anything. We also fund the production of Open Hardware like PSLab to get FOSS moving forward.Learn about Projects Check out PSLab.io
Pocket Science Lab - Open Hardware
PSLab is a FOSS/Open Hardware extension for your smartphone or PC. It enables you to measure all kinds of things by connecting it to your phone or PC via USB. You can use it as an Oscilloscope, Multimeter, Frequency counter, Power Source, Logic Analyzer, Wavelength Generator, Luxmeter, Barometer and many more. Use our Android or desktop app to collect and view the data. And, you can even plug in hundreds of compatible sensors to the PSLab pin slots. What experiments you can do is just limited by your imagination!PSLab GitHub Buy PSLab

Our Background and Mission
What We Do
We bring amazing people together to create, develop, design and make things with Open Technologies - hardware and software - and share our work for the benefit of all. We organize Open Tech summits, science hack labs, meetups and coding programs with developers, designers and contributors. We also incubate projects into companies to support the development of a sustainable FOSS ecosystem.
Why We Do It
Our main goal is to improve people's lives by sharing Open Tech solutions. We want to see that information technology and science has a positive impact on our society. We believe this can be achieved if people have access to digital tools and knowledge. Open Technologies offer free and open access. At FOSSASIA we are excited how sharing is possible on all layers from software, hardware and design to data and knowledge and we work hard to enable people to participate in the sharing society, expand knowledge, tools and opportunities, freedom of communication and expression for everyone.
Who We Are
We are an organization of people from all continents based in Asia. We want to see progress and improvements of people's lives in Asia and everywhere. We are developers, designers, event organizers and contributors who want to learn and share ideas, create and make digital software tools and hardware, that benefit people around the world. FOSSASIA was founded in 2009 by Hong Phuc Dang and Mario Behling.
