The Digilab is furnished in a colourful and energising way, to facilitate meeting in an informal environment. You can write on the glass boards positioned around the room, which is great for planning and mind-mapping. The room comes equipped with a projector, PC and 55" touchscreen connected to a Mac Mini. This can be used to run an iPhone or iPad simulator for demonstrating OU apps. There are also two iMacs and an additional PC which can be used on the OU staff network.
