We have developed an open platform for remote control of scientific equipment with live video for desktop and mobile devices. Supporting material guides the students through the lab at various levels, up to graduate students. The platform currently focuses on plasma physics but can be easily adapted for other fields. Relevant to the current remote learning environment, this democratizes access to laboratory equipment to institutions typically underserved.
