As a system engineer W76NearDark has to attend to some courses once in a while to keep up with in the fast world of IT. May 21st 2013 he had to go to a lecture in Badhoevedorp, Holland. It was held in the Sony building. Not expecting to see anything MSX related, he didn't go well prepared with a professional camera. Who would have thought to see an MSX dedicated display 30 years after its birth anyway?

In the lobby of the building he ran into the display. This was a reason for W76NearDark to tell his colleagues to already go ahead and not wait for him. After looking at the display, he asked the receptionist if the glass doors could be opened to make some pictures. Unfortunately the lady was not willing to comply to his request. So with just a phone camera and through glass he made his pictures.

After three decades Sony has not forgotten MSX.

Did not expect this. Smile
Must be an MSX-enthusiast responsible for this. Smile

Years ago I saw an MSX inside a glass/display cabinet in a Sony Service Center here in Barcelona. To my surprise it was a Sony HB-F1, a rare MSX2 which I believe was never sold in Spain:

There is a small change I'll visit the building again this year. Of course I will make a better effort to get better pictures. Heck, I might even smuggle something with me to put in the displays when I found someone to open the doors Tongue
