Transform Ideas into Functional Prototypes - Simple Little Developments

How can we help?


Prototyping Services

At some stage of your innovation pipeline, you may need a little assistance with creating actual working prototypes. Perhaps an electronic mechanism, or a mobile friendly web application, or a 3D model/object.

See Project Examples

Feel free to contact us for your project enquiries. You can reach us via email to


Are you a non-technical person who simply loves technology? Have you ever dreamt of putting together your own electronics and maybe even write some code one day?

You can realise your dreams! Within a day, you can create your very own working circuits, even if you had no prior programming experience.

Workshops can be held at your office premises. Group size of 3 to 10 participants. If you are interested, please drop us an email to


It is hard to test anything if no one starts to build anything.

Below are some prototypes that we have built, that started with simple questions.

Our mission is to design and develop for good

We start by first trying to understand the problem/purpose,

And then explore simple solutions, and develop purpose-driven prototypes.

Just like some of the examples above.


We start by understanding what is the problem we are trying to solve (and maybe why). And then explore different approaches, before iterating with prototypes of varying resolutions.

The prototypes and mock-ups help users to envision the end product at the early stages and allow for quick iterations. Some may start with paper prototypes, and we help to convert those into wireframes, clickable mock-ups, electronic circuits and other forms of working prototypes.

Computer Vision

We create simple bots that digitize what they see and assist you in monitoring what you are interested in. Object tracking, OCR, object recognition and more.

Now we can have extra pairs of eyes to monitor those analogue devices and CCTVs too!

Electronic Gadgets

We program microcontrollers, sensors and actuators, and use them to solve everyday problems. Some of these included connector devices, which is now more commonly known as IOT (Internet of Things).

It is amazing how much can fit onto these little chips, and how tiny they can be.

Automated Testing

Testing web applications can be very time consuming, and tedious when you need to test the same thing over and over again. And we have heard the true stories of how when something new is built, something else breaks.

So we automate test scenarios, down to the button clicks and the capturing of screenshots!

Data Analysis

We build simple dashboards to turn raw data into meaningful information. Using web based charting libraries, or using tools like Tableau, QlikView or even MS Excel.

It is true that a picture is worth more than a thousand words. And it is also true that the type of picture you draw can change the entire storyline.

Responsive Web Apps

Once in awhile, we also build software applications that are optimized for the web and/or for mobile, to serve particular needs. For example, simple Point of Sales systems. Or connected order taking systems to improve communication between the cashier and the kitchen/back office.

Who are we?

Simple Little Developments is an SME in Singapore that helps to transform ideas and dreams into reality, starting with simple steps. We enjoy doing research, developing ideas, creating prototypes and simple solutions to meet various needs and to improve the quality of life.

Our mission is to design and develop for good

We provide services such as electronics prototyping, 3D modelling, and the creation of web applications. And for those who would like to get more hands on, we also offer simple training workshops. Read More..

For prototyping, this includes Electronics, IOT, Computer Vision, as well as quick software mock-ups for Web Applications and Interfaces.
When you can envision the end result and it is really what you want, you can iterate and quickly turn your dreams into reality.

We also help with developing full-fledged applications for selected projects with clear objectives, especially those with a purpose.
We tend to prefer test driven development, keeping it user centric and keeping it simple.
If it gets too complex, we may suggest other alternatives for your consideration.

For enquiries and feedback, please write to
You are welcome to follow us on Facebook, YouTube or via our Blog to get updates on interesting prototypes and projects.


"Simple little things can mean the deepest things" - Anonymous

It can be really fun and satisfying to build software and hardware solutions to help to solve real world problems.
And to think of ways how technology can be useful to the world at large, especially for the less fortunate.

And yes, to make Singapore and the world a happier place for everyone!

    Finally! You can now engage our services to help you with developing ideas, creating prototypes and simple solutions.

    If you are interested to take a step further and write some code yourself but have no programming experience, you may be interested to attend our introductory workshops where you get to create something and bring it home! We conduct workshops for organizations as well as for individuals with a minimum group size of 3.

    If you are just curious about what we do, you may like to follow our Blog or Facebook Page where we update some of our latest experiments from time to time.

    For many years, we have had fun building little prototypes and solutions in our free time. It was always refreshing and satisfying when we saw the solutions being used for good, even if they were for free. Starting with simple command line software and Windows-based applications, we quickly moved on to Adobe Flash and then subsequently to HTML5 and JavaScript as web technologies advanced over the years. More recently, Computer Vision and Electronics have added a new dimension to our software solutions, allowing the applications to "see" beyond the computer and to interact with the real world even without a computer screen.

    Together with system integration and the vast collection of APIs out in the wild, the possibilities are rather limitless. And even more so with various Smart Nation initiatives.
