2017年3月17日,

柴火x.factory内测开幕后第三天,

太阳也都很争气地,

硬生生在原本春天的季节给了夏天的温度。


所以接到从OCT赶过来的Pavol Bujna的时候,

我还真是有点吃惊:

一个94年的大男孩,

只在facebook上询问了x.factory相关信息后,

就带着他的项目,

从斯洛伐克经伦敦一路飞到深圳来了。

March 17 is such a fine spring day with warm & bright sunshine. It was just 3 days after the soft opening of x.factory, we had a visitor, Pavol Bujna, a maker from Slovakia. 


Pavol contacted us on Facebook to ask about x.factory a few days earlier, and now he was at the front door of x.factory, with his luggage and a brilliant idea, seeking a place and resources to turn it into a prototype. He became the very first member of x.factory!




而在入驻x.factory期间交流里获得的信息,

更是让我们对他刮目相看。

别看一个20出头的小伙子,

却早已游历了全球数十个国家,

每到一处,都在当地的创客空间里面做自己的项目,

完全就是波西米亚式的流浪工作方式,

自由到让人羡慕!


他之前在伦敦停留了比较久的时间,

创立了自己的公司Grandpa Technology LTD

也做过一个太阳能充电手环项目,上了Kickstarter众筹,

但是因为把众筹目标订的太高,

最终众筹不了了之。

During his stay at x.factory, we got to know more about Pavol. A twenty something, who has travelled to dozens of countries globally and he has been making/working on his projects at the local maker spaces when he arrives at new places. What a Bohemian way of lifestyle! 

He stayed in London for a while, and founded his own company, Grandpa Technology LTD. Previously, he has been working on a solar-charging bracelet project and put it onto Kickstarter for crowd-funding. However, it didn’t meet the goal unfortunately.




所以Kickstarter算是他心中的一个结,

而他这次来深圳的也是为了下一个KS众筹项目出原型。

他要做的是一个无线充电智能钱包,

名叫CHAARGO,

除了普通钱包的功能,

还身兼无线充电包一用,

使用最新的Qi 1.2技术实现快速充电,

满足爱外出小伙伴“CHARGE AND GO”即充即走的期待。

A successful Kickstarter campaign seems to be a must-do in his heart. And this visit to Shenzhen is to accomplish the prototype of his new project: a wireless charging wallet. He named this project CHAARGO. Apart from the usual function of a wallet, it adopts the latest Qi 1.2 fast charge standard to provide the function of wireless charging, which meets the demand of those of you who would love to “CHARGE AND GO”. 


CHAARGO原型演示


整整30天,他走访了深圳数个工厂,

从线上订购了无数零部件儿,

也在x.factory通宵达旦做原型,

还真的在30天内完成了从idea到prototype的落地。

In his 30-day stay at x.factory, Pavol visited dozens of factories, bought countless components online, worked overnight constantly. And he did MAKE it, from ideas to prototype in 30 days!

With his visa expiry approaching, Pavol left x.factory and flew to the Silicon Valley on April 14th, to prepare for the next voyage of his project CHAARGO.

Pavol绝对是个焊接高手(Pavol is a soldering master, no doubt!)

而今天5月27日凌晨(北京时间),

Pavol 在大洋彼岸给我们发来了最新的项目进展,

CHAARGO的Kickstarter众筹之旅开始啦!

对项目感兴趣的小伙伴欢迎通过以下二维码,

And on May 27th, Pavol shared the latest update of his project: CHAARGO is now live on Kickstarter. We were all excited to hear this good news from across the pacific!

或许这个项目,就很完满地诠释了x.factory一直在努力的

“国际创客项目+深圳在地产业链+敏捷制造+国际众筹”

这样的资源聚合和对接愿景。

移国际创客社区的花,嫁接到深圳在地产业,

“移花接木”实现项目的茁壮成长。


It seems this project perfectly interprets what x.factory has been striving to do: global makers + Shenzhen industries + agile manufacturing + crowd-funding. With the vision of building a community and connecting resources, helping global makers to fully utilize the resources in Shenzhen to grow fiercely!

其实,现在回头想想,

Pavol留在x.factory的最后一天,

他跟我们的聊天里,

透露出很多深圳带给他的触动:

快到让他惊呆的物流,

出租车即叫即来的Didi,

几乎万能的微信支付和支付宝,

繁华又几乎可以买到任何配件的华强北,

快速的发展节奏和高效率的工作方式,

他觉得这些都是支撑他30天完成原型计划的保证。

Looking back at the conversation with Pavol the days before he left for Silicon Valley, something about Shenzhen seems to touched his heart :)

The fast logistics

The convenient transportation especially the call-and-go Didi

The powerful WeChat Pay and Alipay

The magical HuaQiangBei electronic market

The Shenzhen speed

The efficient work style

……

He did mention in the conversation that all these elements make it possible for him to go from idea to prototype within 30 days!

Pavol离开深圳搭的是凌晨航班,

走之前,他还留给我们一个手持云台,

希望我们可以记录更多与making相关的人和事。

最后愿CHAARGO众筹成功,

而x.factory也会有更多好玩的making发生,

敬请期待... …

Pavol took the early flights to San Francisco, and he gave us a hand-held stabilizer as a gift, hoping we can record more stories of makers and making in Shenzhen.

We are also looking forward to seeing more maker stories happening in x.factory! Stay tuned!
