SexyCyborg is a hacker, a maker and a beautiful girl from Shenzhen, China. She came up with an infinity skirt, a wearable array of LED lit infinity mirror tiles inspired by traditional Chinese armor for Maker Faire. I guess it’s safe to say that she’s got it all: good looks and solid technical knowledge and skills.
Zhongdong Miao Village is situated in the mountains of Anshun in the Guizhou province of southwest China. The village is situated inside the cave at 1800 meters (almost 6000 ft) above sea level and has about 100 dwellers. The villagers built roofless houses, schools and a basketball court there. It is warm in winter, cool in summer and dry all year long. The community used to have a high school as well, but the Chinese government closed the school in early 2011. Now, the closest school is a two-hour walk there and back.
These photos show four blocks of dormitory complex near Shanghai that housed factory workers employed by Apple contractor Pegatron, a Taiwanese electronics giant, until they were abandoned in a hurry some eight weeks ago. Apart from staff’s bad and austere living conditions their salaries were ridiculous. Their basic salaries were just under £250 ($360) a month for working six day per week and 12-hour shifts. They could increase their salaries by about £200 ($287) by working daily overtime. It is not the first time that Pegatron Corporation was criticized for putting their employees into inhumane working conditions. In December 2014 a BBC investigation exposed poor working conditions and employee mistreatment at Pegatron factories making Apple products. As you can see through these pictures, nothing much has changed. Take a look.
