Here we go!

  • Fenggangzhen

    In Fenggangzhen we found where the cheap bicycle lights we buy online could have been produced. Pretending to be buyers we've seen the production line ourselves.

    Foxconn Dongguan

  • Dongguan

    While filming in Dongguan we met one of the 1.3 million workers at Foxconn. Their factories are located north of Shenzhen. Impressive to hear what it’s like to be part of such a workforce.

  • Producing in Shajingzhen

    Impressive to see what it takes to produce high-end phone accessories. We had a great interview with product-manager Frank and suited up for the dust-free zone.

  • Factory of the World

    We have arrived in mainland China, Shenzhen to be specific. Also known as ‘the factory of the world’.

    Our search led us to the DealExtreme facility here in Shenzhen where we received a warm welcome by Mr. Chow, CEO of DX Holdings.

  • Hong Kong!

    We have arrived and started our journey in Hong Kong, a lot of the Chinese webshops are located here. We looked up the addresses and started our search. We ended up in high-end business towers in the financial district and hot crowed offices a more rough part of town. One small office apparently locates hundreds of companies. Check out the impression of our first few days.

  • Voiceovers recorded

    Yesterday we headed to Amsterdam to record the teaser voiceovers with audio mastermind Remko.

  • Tickets booked!

    Today we decided to buy tickets! We're officially heading to China to find out how these awesome products get delivered. YES!
