There are very few places around the world more suitable for electronics production than Shenzhen, China. In this city you can find a huge bazaar full of skyscrapers selling parts.
Our current schedule:
- fly to Hong Kong
- stay there for 2 nights
- take the train to Shenzhen where we will stay for 10 days
- install ourselves in our appartment next to the Window of the World (this location is completely by accident… really)
- go to the Shenzhen Maker Faire
- visit the electronics markets with our (currently) six page shopping list and room for surprises
- brainstorm, design and build
- visit local businesses, factories and interesting people
- return to Hong Kong for one more night
- fly back to Amsterdam
During our stay, we will be blogging and giving you updates on our brainstorm/design sessions. Beyond the design files and technical details we also want to share our experience of Shenzhen. The madness of manufacturing and the Chinese wall of language/culture we expect to run into and climb over. If you have any specific questions about on-the-ground interactions – tweet us and we will be you experimentors.
We wanted to share this wonderful promo of the Shenzhen Maker Faire with you:
