Discovery to air new series 'Smart China'

MUMBAI: This September, join hacker Josh Klein as he explores some of China’s most innovative experiments, technologies, and teams that are pushing the boundaries of human ingenuity, in a new series from Discovery. Find out how China is leading a wave of global innovation on SMART CHINA, premiering on Discovery on September 3, airing every Saturday at 11 PM.

Josh Klein is a hacker. He loves examining things – from systems to processes to animal behavior – then, taking them apart and putting the pieces together again to produce something better and more efficient. On each episode of SMART CHINA, Josh delves into how China – once known as the world’s biggest factory – transforms into the world’s biggest laboratory of entrepreneurship and invention, to help us live cleaner, greener, and smarter as we move into the next century.

The series will introduce unique new products and technologies such as the supercapacitor tram, food safety tracking systems, visible light communication, a price comparison app, and autonomous drive technology. It will also examine how these innovations could help address a number of environmental and lifestyle challenges faced in China, such as air pollution, water scarcity, traffic congestion, and food safety.

Smart Move

Josh travels thousands of kilometers to meet with some of China’s smartest minds, learn about their unique innovations, and joins forces with a panel of experts to search for innovations that could radically solve the world’s transport problems. A super powered tram packed with supercharged capacitors is capable of travelling almost ten kilometers on only ten seconds of charge. An incredible innovation has the potential to transform commercial air travel. An innovative travel tool could make daily commutes more convenient. The future of transportation is here!

Smart Life

In this episode, Josh unearths innovations that could radically transform our lives. An incredible tech uses naked light to transmit digital data 10,000 times faster than today’s Wi-Fi and it’s near impossible to hack; an advanced food safety tracking system ensures safety of produce from farm to table; and when self-propelled liquid metal robots find their feet and walk into our daily lives, this could well usher in a new century where science fiction becomes science fact.

Smart Planet

Creating a smarter planet for the future does not mean negating the past. In fact – quite the opposite, combining traditional wisdom plus future tech equals a smart future. Josh investigates technology that could transform our lives and create a clean, green Smart Planet. This episode unveils groundbreaking futuristic projects: an elegant innovation harnesses the power of the sun like never before, maximizing plant growth and generating solar energy; a vehicle connected to the smart world around could make our futuristic life safer and more efficient; coal – an ancient energy – is being revolutionized and transformed into a clean green power source; and a living, breathing, cleaning machine has the ability to filter up to 2,400 cubic meters of polluted water a day.

SMART CHINA is produced by Discovery in cooperation with the China Intercontinental Communication Center (CICC).
