“First impression of Shenzhen”

View-Of-Hqb-Shenzhen-Lychee-Park

First impression of Shenzhen @ My Life via Seeed.

Yesterday (Friday) after the work my chief (actually the boss and founder of the whole company) took me to an interesting “gathering” in his last office space. After they moved to the new office he sponsored the last office and some parts, tools and furniture to create a “hacker-space” in Shenzhen. A hacker-space is something like a workshop/-studio where people can come and find tools, parts and space to work on their or other projects. A possibility the most people don’t have at home. Either for free or for a small fee (here it is for free everything sponsored by Seeed). But besides this possibility nearly the most important thing is that you can find other people there. Like-minded people with whom you can talk, ask for help or suggestions, exchange ideas, create teams, inspire each other and create something new in an crazy inspiring atmosphere.

At this hacker-space you can find place for dirty work, place for clean work, some office space for you or your start-up company, tools ranging from a soldering-iron or drilling machine to a 3D-printer (MakerBot), some place for meetings and presentation and some place for chill-out, get some food and relax. Different works were presented in some showcase ranging from successful developed and already selling electrical products likeB-Squares or the Bulbdial Clock to different nice artworks without any technical background.

Interesting overview.
