Factory Tours @ Hacker Camp 2016

I had a great time at Hacker Camp over the past week, meeting hackers and makers coming to Shenzhen from around the world. A huge thanks to the folks at Dangerous Prototypes for making it all happen!

One of the great things about touring factories in China is how open they are about letting you take photos (something you wouldn’t get in the west). Since they’re so happy to share with me, I figure the least I can do is to share with everyone else.

PCB (Printed Circuit Board) Factory

Capacitor Factory (What’s a capacitor?)

Connector Factory

A surprise entry on the itinerary – just downstairs from the capacitor factory and we got invited in. They make all kinds of connectors, including stuff like USB and HDMI.

And Finally, a Garden


For some (wonderful) reason, there was a garden outside the factory growing fresh veg. Nice to see the contrast between nature and technology in Shenzhen.

More pictures from Hacker Camp coming when I get time to upload them…
