Richard Lai

Senior Editor; Engadget Chinese Editor-in-chief

Richard's love for gadgets was probably triggered by an electric shock at the age of five while poking his finger into power sockets for no reason. Since then he has managed to destroy a few more desktops and phones until he was sent to England to start secondary education. Somehow he ended up in London, where he had the golden opportunity to buy a then senior editor a pint of lager, and here we are. Follow Richard around in electronic stores and you will witness some intense exchanges between him and the sales reps.


Ethics: Richard's partner is an employee of LeEco as of May 9th, 2016, therefore he has no input into articles about this company after this date.
