Ha, good thing they didn't show my favourite junk parts shop.

My sources for old test equipment and stuff are still 'secret'. :D
Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.

Pretty cool, I went there a few years ago but only had half a day and unfortunately no knowledgeable people to show me the real nice shops like this so I mostly saw the large mainstream stores that have the same new stuff as we know, the era of Japan having exclusive cool devices seems to be gone.
 
I'd really have wanted to see the retro stuff we never knew about...

I was thinking more 90's era uncommon form factor laptops, but that was awesome! Gotta love the guy with his clones  ;D

Indeed!
Just like finding the better Shinjuku noodle shops.
