We examine the unique manufacturing ecosystem that has emerged, gaining access to the world’s leading hardware-prototyping culture whilst challenging misconceptions from the west. The film looks at how the evolution of “Shanzhai” – or copycat manufacturing – has transformed traditional models of business, distribution and innovation, and asks what the rest of the world can learn from this so-called “Silicon Valley of hardware".

HOLY LAND: STARTUP NATIONS (SERIES 2)
Premiering in February, the second season of WIRED’s Future Cities series takes us inside one of the world’s biggest startup nations. With the most tech startups and venture capital per capita in the world, Israel has long been hailed as The Startup Nation. WIRED’s four-part series will look beyond Tel Aviv’s vibrant, liberal tech epicentre to the wider Holy Land region – the Palestinian territories, where a parallel Startup Nation story is emerging in East Jerusalem, Ramallah and the West Bank, as well as in the Israeli cybersecurity hub of Beersheba. And we will learn how the fertile innovation ecosystem of Silicon Wadi has evolved as a result of its unique political, geographical and cultural situation and explore the future challenges – and solutions – these nations are facing.

In my case, I need Shenzen, Shenzen needs me. I'm so limited here in Australia as to what I can give the world because what I give is always stolen, taken by another and made their own. For this I fear sharing and innovation, I know whom it is empowering and feel that it only benefits a select few who view anyone outside their realm as mere tools. There are too many things worth mentioning, but what is blatantly obvious to me is that I'm not the only one. Brilliant story, it made me very sad and also very happy. One day, we'll be able to zoom in very close to the human DNA strand, and at that time, we will read something written along the strand; Made in China.
REMEMBER people chinese teens will steal your ideas for fun. Before you put it out there, trademark and patent it in more populous countries. Be smart, be safe from chinese theft because the chinese government doesn't care unless you are recognized by them as the inventor. 👌
We did not “forget” how to manufacture goods, solder, etc. big tech companies simply outsource to China while perfectly serviceable US citizens get put out of work. American companies should hire AMERICAN workers. And by the way, the middle class is growing once again!
Boy, what I learned about Shenzen! I have ordered electronic parts from there and never knew that a a small vendor from a great city responded to my needs. Thanks for a great video, great narration, great scenes!
There is a huge difference between Silicon Valley and Shen Zhen. Silicon Valley produces new tech never seen before and defines the direction the industry will go in the future while shen zhen simply produces existing tech faster, easier, cheaper. It is not difficult to see which is the more innovative area.
Three years later, Baishizhou urban village is still here. They refused to sell out to the developers in order to protect their lifestyle. We’re all so happy about that as we love to eat and drink in that amazing, friendly and raw environment.
they talk about how these phones are evolved from the product they were copied from but how good is the security? that's mostly what people want, people want a responsive phone that is easy to use and secure.
four golden rules that consumers want.
1. looks good
2. easy to use
that's why apple is such a successful product, they look clean, their OS is extremely easy and fluent, they're fast and the security is unparalleled.
Of course it's copying. And if it's copied without permission then it's said to be stealing. However the west views IP theft differently. So the real question becomes, is the concept of IP ( intellectual property ) worth anything in China? Or is it a complete waste of effort to try to get a IP patient in China? I heard that the Chinese government is starting to take IP rights more seriously nowadays. Not sure how true that is.
intuiting market infrastructure is extremely important in that,overproduction should be limited to market demographic analysis as to what will be needed for replacement parts in that industry ie auto parts per year and amount of running cars needing parts of that year,or which laptops need parts that were made in what year still in use needing parts,that way overproduction wont have to be dissassembled for higher use in the future...this will help the manufacturers and developers in those areas as well as cutting on obsolesent stock unused and unsold....
Aber nicht als Babies rauben........Es gibt Elenden Museum.......Zivil Gericht ...Medizin Gerichte....Militärische Grichten ......Krankhaft Schämlos.....Ohne Ferien & Ohne Urlaubt ......Rauben Flüchtlingskinder.......Organs + Geburtscheint + Augen.......Unbeschreibbar......
Invasion is the top priority from China!! Chinese Communist all they cares is for themselves!! Chinese wants to control the world!! But how? Where ever any places Chinese comes is stealing technology, invaded land…Blah…Blah…China # 1 like they are the boss!! Chinese is good brain wash peoples! Be careful, aware of these Communist China!!
From the word of these Chinese techs themselves; they have admitted to stealing intellectual property. The Chinese develop few new things, they steal them. When someone has an idea and spends time and a lot of money to develop it, they deserve to be rewarded. If they are not, innovation is dependent on people like the Chinese who don't develop new things. We would be stuck in a dark age.
I suspect that this documentary has Chinese Government money behind it.
Watch out for the vast lies Chinese will tell you. It's all about saving face. You ask them a direct important question about quality and manufacturing dates and they will tell you what you want to hear. It's NEVER the truth. And all the while they're trying to steal from you.
All this sounds nice however, I've purchased many Chinese made items and they're all junk. The Chinese are out for a quick buck and that's it. I don't see innovation I just see copy/steal tech and then slap it together as cheap as possible and sell as many as they can before people get wise to the junk.
Those are all fake copy.
Chainses doesn't like American products however there are so many fake apple phones.
They dont like USA but they send their kids to USA for studying and better life.
Mr Xi has a lot of his money in USA. But he is fighting with usa.
Although the Chinese are widely known to build knock off products, it's a good alternative for people that don't want to pay unrighteously high prices for Apple store hardware. Foxconn and other manufacturers have underpaid Chinese workers, while Apple rakes in high profits and pays American workers enough to drive the price of real estate to an astronomical level. Don't even mention the price of rent in the city. Working class citizens have to move into public housing apartments. No wait... Most of them don't qualify for public housing, because the standard for approval caters to people that have never worked a day in their entire lives. Build housing for people that are too lazy to work and give them food assistance, while working class people can't even get a discount on bus passes to get to work every day? I'm not paying for over priced phones and junk, but I will pay for good quality Japanese, German, and Chinese products that are valuable.
I love the concept of open source information and the freedom it provides for developers along with the potential for higher standards of living for more people. I am also very concerned about the overall ecology of our ever developing world. There has to be a balance there somewhere or we are doomed to fail. All this stuff produces enormous amounts of waste while consuming natural resources at an ever increasing rate. I would like to see that addressed as an equally important topic of concern as well, alongside prosperity. We can’t live like there’s no tomorrow or our children’s children will pay a heavy price for that in many ways. Take care, much love and good fortune.
It seems like there is a bit of a continuum going on here. On the one end are patent trolls who, as they say in the video, make nothing but control the rights to ideas and make money by suing people. I don't think that is helpful to a broader economy. But at the other end is Shenzhen where they have this "open ip" euphemism for stealing other peoples work. I mean, let's not kid ourselves; apart from a handful of products that became fads like the hover boards these "open ip" communities make a significant amount of their money by exploiting their position in the manufacturing chain to find good engineering ideas and then just blatantly rip them off. This feels like they are simply trying to rationalize the behavior, especially when you consider that successful international products engineered in China aggressively patent their own designs. Huawei, for example, had the largest volume of international patent applications in the world in 2018 with 5405 applications to WIPO and were near the top in 2017 with 4024. Now,I'm just curious, how do you think they would react to being told that their own patents would be ignored by the rest of the world because we're getting behind the "open ip" movement? It doesn't seem fair to say "we don't care about ip because open is better for science" and then turn around and say "except for our own stuff, that should be protected."
Spell reptilian do you not find the sound of Italian in there Colosseum game what was underneath the Colosseum before the Italians reptilians they called the Chinese as Etruscan just Google it learn about the past
Etruscans Tradeoffs Traders ungrounded like old times under the Colosseum Italy then they made an exit with the group sex like the concubine Who Conquered nobody knew who the father was in the group sex just like in the Forbidden City and forbidden knowledge all about the cake it's all about the casing and what is inside transformation of innovation is that why America is after Huawei to break the Cortex and coccyx backbone of China trying to change the head great mother China XI Chen
@RYAN SEACREST lol, I am not even a Chinese.
I just said things in unbiased an third person perspective
Now, truth always hurts.
But, thanks for the video.
I will watch it right now, I love to listen to different perspectives 😊
@Company Broadcast watch this video and listen carefully. china has betray usa, china will be banned and kicked out of wto and banned from trade with usa soon. prepare for trade war. good luck you will need it
Can u pls clarify how they betrayed USA? THEY JUST OUTPACED EVERYONE AND NOW TRUMP IS JEALOUS OF THAT.
he does not have any right to be jealous because while he was thinking about building a wall
China was innovating and growing
Then why Chinese keeps on filing their patents in US market if they truly believe in sharing the IP?
It seems like a sugarcoated execuse for stealing someone’s property when you want them but don’t want to pay.
Not only in the U.S. but also in any "developed" countries such as Korea, Japan, England,Germany and etc. I'm not saying there isn't patent abuse such as patent monopoly, where the gov't can regulate by setting a limit for loyalty and terms and so forth. My point is granting the legal protection for any sorta property either intellectual or real estate is very legitimate unless they are developed as part of research and pedagogical purpose for the entire humanity. Who decides this? Surely not the copier, but the inventor and the property holder. Furthermore, if they really want to argue for the open source, then they should open source theirs too consistently. Why China has reaped the benefit of patent/trademark filing system, the very legal platform they seem to oppose using their home advantage? https://www.bbc.com/news/business-36200481
can we make a society where Education is free for all? Nicola Tesla worked for the benefit of humanity to bring free energy for all because he realized that energy is all around us what is needed is a collective effort by all to tap into this energy source and make everyone's life better in contrast our current society ruled by greed takes from the effort of others to concentrate wealth on the few. there is equal potential on every human being on every human mind only together will humanity be able to solve the big challenges that lay on our path to conquer the Universe.
Of course they say everything is open source, nobody will be able to claim it as their own...... because CHINA STEALS EVERYTHING!! Bunch of no good crooks!
CHINA 🇨🇳 THE SILICON VALLEY OF STOLEN HARDWARE!!
TRUMP 2020 🇺🇸
it's now 2019, and this 2016 video is more relevant now than ever
showing the polar opposites of open source sharing (unlimited makers world) = rapid change for innovation = "next iteration is better" (better for all)
the western mentality of proprietary hoarding "closed source ideas = frozen in time-stamp-filed patents" (that get obsolete so fast, due to "standing still" too long) = both ego-centric + greedy = results in falling behind, because of selfish unwillingness to share ideas, to move forward, for the good of all
While opensource is cool and all, it is dellusional to make the comparasion you are making
its not selfish to keep something proprietary, specially when it cost money to be made
while these makers projects are cool they are a hobby when compared to robust and optimized proprietary software and hardware
tell me: why would someone spend a year or more optimizing some piece of software for free? there are people that do that, but the great majority of professionals are going to be doing such work for a company, for a salary
sorry for the bad english
Very well done, thanks.
I lived in Guangdong Province for almost 9 years until 2013 when I returned to USA.
I couldn't breath very well in China.
My favorite Deng Xiaoping quote is: "It's glorious to be rich."
It's even more glorious to breath!!!
@Jamie Shows As if multi-billion, or even multi-trillion dollar companies like Apple and Nike don't exploit workers in 3rd world nations. In fact, because they do they have given the people that work in those places the opportunity to copy designs. I don't blame them whatsoever.
I compare this with the Bloomberg documentary. It's so much more educational without any condescending tone, probably due to the fact that Wired sent someone of the same ethnicity as the country they are reporting on
