Popular Item/Destinations + Chinese Ingenuity +
Literal trademark infringement = Often hilarious results
Some are downright better than the original, all possible by our resourcefulness.
HiPhone & APhone A6 = A copy of the new iPhone 4, features defective construction and half-assed apps. Best part its about $100 and the A6 can run the Android OS.
iPed = A tad smaller than the iPad but features a USB port, webcam and a expandable memory slot, all at a reasonable price of about $140.
I really like this one... What happens when you combine 2 popular search engines such as Google and ironically Baidu?
Meet Goojje = Uses Google's interface and sticks Baidu's signature paw print logo on it. Apparently this is a work of a student and it doesnt have its own internal search engine but links both Baidu and Google results.
Nat Nat Shoes = Chuck Taylor's with a twist, you can turn them into sandals, about $30. Reviews say its flimsy and have a "cheap" feeling.
Pizza Huh = Goes along with KFG and Bucksstar Coffee. This was actually a whole venue dedicated to knockoff fast-food joints, dubbed "Shanzhai Street". It also included a ice cream place called "Haagon Bozs", sounds awfully familiar. Too bad it met its demise and was shutdown after too much exposure via the network of tubes.
China's own American Landmarks = Full scale replicas of the White House, Mount Rushmore, Washington Monument, you name it they will probably have all it one day.
America Fuck Yeah!
China's Fine Art Factory = "Artists" drawing replicas of Picassos, Van Goghs, Da Vincis and other famous works. Accounts for a large percent of the global oil-painting market, gotta give cred for being so good at what they do.
The rest is pretty common, just totally copying most of the popular American shows such as "American Idol" and Next Top Model". Chinese knockoff version of the RX SUV and the Mini Coopers...
