That's actually... useful. I've never really known what people did with 
them, beyond the occasional little bit of amusement.

I've got a serial-interfaced one based around an RCA 1802 which I last had 
hooked up to an Apple II a few years ago, but it's one of those "cool to 
have" things rather than really serving any purpose.
