Inside China's 'Silicon Valley of Hardware,' Shenzhen, with hardware hacker Bunnie Huang

In the first of a series of documentary videos about 'Future Cities,' WIRED UK has released a wonderful short doc on Huaqiangbei, the vast market district in Shenzhen, China.

They picked the best host and guide imaginable for this project, hardware hacker and researcher Andrew "Bunnie" Huang.

The piece explores Moore's Law and its impact on software vs hardware development, and includes a visit to HAX, the only hardware accelerator of its kind in the world.

We also begin to explore the origins of this unique and vibrant city, and how it continues to be shaped. Episode two is out next Tuesday 14th June.
