New Chinese Smart Hardware Unlocks New Business

Intelligent hardware innovation allows "made-in-China" to refresh its old image in the world. Beyond manufacturing, Chinese geeks are thinking more about how to make smart hardware "really smart" and become people's companions rather than simple tools. What if drones become super easy to control and super safe to play with? What if having a personal robot to follow you and record exciting moments that you cannot see from your angle? What if voice interaction becomes a dominant access to more life scenarios, like info search, driving, navigation, services order, etc.? What if you can own a never-lost bicycle on your way to anywhere in cities? All these are not limited to "sound cool." They are what Chinese geeks make happen. And it is the way that they are trying to rewrite the "source code” of Chinese economy.
