Guancha is a speculative design for the dystopian future. I chose this project topic in response to political events currently taking place in China. In 2014, the Chinese government announced that it would implement a Social Credit System, tracking the actions of every citizen. Each action would have an associated reward or penalty, creating a Big-Brother society. This is a reality that should never happen, but presents an interesting design problem:

How do you continuously track the actions of 1 billion people?
