I had a chance to explore two stores in the most amazing block of Taipei last night. One city block dedicated to electronics, with many stores carrying only components. To be clear, these are not surplus salvaged leftovers, these are beautiful bins overflowing with delectable pristine switches, LEDs, buzzers, angled screw terminals, and on and on. All for cheap.
My only problem is that I can only say cat in chinese, so... I have to draw most of what I want if I cant find it. That is not a problem accept when it comes to describing translucent, as in RGB LEDs with diffused lenses.
I will be back soon. Oh, and the music is actually what is played in the store :)
