From Made in China, to Designed by China, it seems still a long long way to go for China. We are always looking for innovation in Chinese tech industry, unfortunately, there is not much there.

But we have the hope. Invited by Hunan University, I attended the 2nd “Lotus Prize” International Industrial Design and Innovation Competition where for the first time, the designs & ideas from Chinese university students ‘open my eyes’. Among the submitted projects, the Line Phone is my favorite and it is also the golden prize winner. It’s an amazing design!

Although it’s just a concept phone, I think you should applaud for it, it is the Designed by China we are waiting for, isn’t?
