This is a blog documenting what we have seen and experienced in manufacturing Kingdom, Shenzhen.

As researchers at the MIT Media Lab, we were working on several research projects that require large scale manufacturing, which is not possible to do at MIT’s machine shop. With support from the Lab, we went to Shenzhen, the center of the world consumer electronics manufacturing.

Spending 4 days in Shenzhen we visited factories and the electronics market. The goal of the tour was to understand the manufacturing process and connecting with the right people in Shenzhen. The tour of injection molding, rigid and flex PCBs was arranged and done by AQS with help from bunnie Huang. AQS is a company that provides solutions for electronics manufacturing.

Special Thanks to Joi Ito (Director of MIT Media Lab), bunnie Huang, our advisors Joe Paradiso and Chris Schmandt for their support.
