Calling the Clash a ska band is like calling the Beatles a ska band.
If Eddie Izzard worked at Square Enix: "How stupid do I think the gamers are? They'll pay money to navigate menus. We'll tell them it's from Japan."
These are clearly 4th wave ska telescopes, so RBF and the Pietasters are obsolete technology.
...it'll only work if it's made from Reardon metal.
This is ringing a bell. I don't remember the name, unfortunately. The unit looked sort of like a blue-gray speak and spell, but one without a keyboard. Instead of the keyboard, imagine a shallow tray with recessed gridlines that held in place little clear plastic blocks containing electronic pieces with a schematic-type symbol on the top. and electrical contacts on the sides. There was battery power on one end of the tray and a speaker on the other. It was a lot easier to use than the Radio Shack nnn-in-one sets, although I don't think it had as many "experiments".
