  10. Software Service Development Hardware Product Development Issue Prototype ・Open Source

    tool ・Personal computer ・Open Source Tool ・Digital fabrication tool (3D printer, CNC,) Manufacturing tool and knowledge are difficult to find on the net. Scaling ・Cloud Computing ・EMS(Electronics Manufacturing Service) The small lot number and flexible manufacturing are mostly in Shenzhen. Funding ・Accelerator ・Accelerator Hardware business need huge money for the scaling up. Marketing ・SNS ・Community ・SNS ・Community Hardware businesses need more retail shop for selling. Huge hardware project is still not easy yet, even in manufacturing! Why the MAKER need to go Shenzhen.
  11. Why manufacturing in Shenzhen is fast and flexible? Here is

    the Makers Hollywood Seeed CEO Eric Pan HuaQigngBei 1 week in Shenzhen, 1 month in Silicon Valley HAX partner Ben An uncountable number of the factory in this area. Also diverse of the factory, they can make anything and also making 100 to 10K production. Some factorys have experience about works by English. Chinese style 公开(Gongkai) IP system.
  12. Chinese style 公开(Gongkai) IP system. Andrew Bunnie Huang 「The Hardware

    Hacker」(2017) Western model = Patent separate from the physical things Chinese model = the physical things include the patent If you buy Physical thing in China, you can get also Intellectual Property. Example: Public mother board (公板, GongBan) You can buy a motherboard of Smartphone, Camera, drone and tablet from 1pcs to 10,000pcs. You can get BOM (Bill of Material) when you get motherboard. Original motherboard is expensive, copy is cheaper. You can easy to make new products from the motherboard. And any IP‘s are easy to share on the market. That model is more effective for innovation.
  13. Case one: Robin Wu, from Shenzhen He called Shanzhai King

    山寨王 He invented the Intel CPU version of Fake iPad in just 60 days and was called "Shanzhai King". Normally he is not only Shanzhai, he is doing various inventions such as IoT mug and jacket with GPS.
  14. Robin Wu, told us…. Although the new invention leads to

    a margin, Simple Idea can copy within 90 days. How much money can you make in the first 90 days, the first is all. Mass production at once, it is good to sell it.
  15. Chen Rex told to us…. COPY STARY STARY is $899

    product. Spend money for quality, that mean looks like just skateboard. Fake E-Skateboards are $150-250. They want to make Cheep E-Skateboard, Not our competitor. Price for high-end product such as DJI, we can Survive. Price is high but quality is same as cheaper one such as GoPro, we can’t Survive.
