In particular, we look at how the evolution of “shanzhai” - or copycat manufacturing - has created an ecosystem that could transform traditional models of business, distribution and innovation. Although, technically, any knock-off goods can be called shanzhai, the word's meaning has recently shifted to refer to electronic goods, and episode three delves behind the scenes of this business culture.
The final part of the series is out next Tuesday June 28, when we’ll be asking to what extent the practices in Shenzhen have the power to revolutionise our world. Subscribe to the WIRED YouTube channel to not miss an episode.

Future Cities is part of a new flagship documentary strand from WIRED Video that explores the technologies, trends and ideas that are changing our world.
