I remember seeing them as a kid -- they looked *so* cool! -- but I 
didn't have 'em. I had a Radio Shack 100-in-1 project kit, and that's

Amos has a point about Doepfer's DIY MIDI products. There are a 
couple of other devices out there, like the ones from 
http://highlyliquid.com/ , and you should look at the MIDI Solutions 
boxes like the Pedal Controller:
