Ten Days in Shenzhen @karimyaghmour @bunniestudios #makerbusiness

Ten Days in Shenzhen

The first time I was in Shenzhen the group I was with was accompanied by someone who spoke Mandarin. While there this November I did see a handful of foreigners walking with what seemed to either be translators or local contacts. Before this trip, I wasn’t sure whether I’d be able to make it solo to do something as specific as discussing and shopping for electronics without knowing the local language. With the proper preparation and tools, that turned out not to be a show-stopper. I wouldn’t hesitate doing it again in fact.


Check out this fascinating account of a journey to Shenzhen and the markets in Huaqiangbei from Karim Yaghmour featuring Bunnie Huang’s excellent guide book, The Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
