  • I visited by myself in 2010 and it was amazing! Knowing only a couple of words of Mandarin I managed to buy some ATmega’s for about a buck each, and some really nice side cutters and other tools for a few dollars. It was hectic, but the stall holders were very accommodating and patient. It would be a great place to setup camp when developing a new product.
    I wish I could have visited with you, for the most part I had no idea where I was or what I was doing while I was there!

  • A friend of mine worked for these guys:

    … who built a bicycle trailer that feeds power into the grid. Fun, if only to gain an appreciation for just how much work is required to generate a miserly amount of electricity. I can probably glean some technical details if you’re interested (shoot me an email).

No public wish lists :(
