You probably saw that cool video of the Wii playing on a 1.5-inch TV. Here's the set, which you can only buy in Japan, unfortunately.

The livingroom is of the Showa era, which starts in 1926 and ends in 1989, as defined by the life of the Emperor Hirohito. (Thanks Wikipedia, history lesson over)

The coolest thing is the working 1.5-inch color television set in it. The set itself has knobs on the side for power, volume, and A/V inputs on the back for movies or video games or whatever. According to google translate, you can't read subtitles on this set. No shit.

I want this more than anything else in gadgetdom now. The photos for the knobs are great:

Yeah these things cost 12000yen and upwards. It depends on how many accesories you want with it.

the screen used is from older generation mobile phones-you know from the pre-qvga era. The detailing is awesome. Also I might add that the screen maybe tiny but the set does have a reasonably loud speaker, and did I mention I have been saving up to get one myself. I'll try and head out to Akihabara during the weekend and get some more pics of miniature tv's in different room settings.
