Physical mixing board for Mac "GarageBand" software

Pretty cool: A German tech company called M-Audio has released what they've named the iControl - a physical mixing board that exactly matches the onscreen one of the popular Apple software "GarageBand," even down to the fake wood trim. And even better, no special software is needed for the mixer itself; just plug it in and it automatically detects your GarageBand software, and immediately starts interacting with it. Expect it to retail for about $200 in the US when it finally goes on sale here. (Thanks to Gizmodo for pointing this out.)
