Blast Theory Beta

Are you good at breaking things? Then Blast Theory needs you.

Whether you’re a technophile who wants to see the wires hanging out or just curious to see the wheels fall off when our new ideas go wrong, the Blast Theory Beta programme is for you!

As a member of Our Friends Electric you’ll receive invitations to take part in testing and feedback at different stages of new projects, including invitations to tests taking place as part of Blast Theory’s research work.

You’ll get a sneak peek at all the also-rans and aborted prototypes that never make it into the final project and have a say in the direction of the work. Tests may involve taking part online, downloading a test mobile app or turning up at a location in the flesh. In all cases, you’ll need to be willing to fill in feedback surveys and give a clear account of your experience in tests.

We will normally only have a limited number of places available for tests but by joining the programme you’ll have first dibs on joining.

To join, simply
