You can see the construction is right on the edge of what is physically possible manually.

The next stage must be robotic assembly on a scale below that.

Overnight 100,000 high-skill, high-tech Chinese will be suddenly unemployed.

The Chinese economy will implode.

100,000 represents nothing for the Chinese economy.

Chinese population is around 1.4 billion

The workforce is around 800 million.

Around 400 million are in agriculture.

Kind of a useless video. The guy shows how to assemble a bunch of parts that you can only buy reliably if you're located in Shenzhen, China. And he doesn't even turn the phone on.
