A week from today my partner, Louisa, and I leave for China, where I am to speak at BIT's First Annual 3D Printing Conference in Dalian. While in China, we're also spending time in Shanghai and Beijing. Because I'm a geek, and the fact that this is my first time leaving the western hemisphere, I mapped out our journey:
While our itinerary is relatively sparse (this is by design, as we wanted plenty of time for general meandering) I have found a few places I'd like to check out while in Shanghai, including:
DFRobot: China's equivalent to Sparkfun, with offices in the Pundong district of Shanghai.
Xin Che Jian: China’s first hackerspace. I am hoping to attend one of their regular workshops in DIY hardware, software and/or digital fabrication.
Beijing Lu: This district is Shanghai's largest marketplace for electronics and hardware. Perhaps my most highly anticipated destination!
I'll be blogging my travel experiences during/after my trip!
