Real retro-gaming music action

I love DIY music-tech. An American who calls himself X|K (I'm guessing it's a he), has created MIDINES, a cartridge for the old NES video games which give you MIDI control over the eight-bit music chip in the machine, and displays psychedelic digital images on the screen that are also controlled by the MIDI signals. He's selling a few units here on Ebay for around $80. So, for the price of a cheapo VST plugin you get some crazy one-off homemade hardware, and the chance to make music that really doesn't sound like anyone else's. You can pick up a NES for £20 on Ebay (probably a lot less at a charity shop), although you'll need a US box to run MIDINES. MORE
