Who remember's Merlin?

This was an amazing gadget. It was the precursor to the modern day "Simon" and built by Bob Doyle a genius electronic engineer. He also was responsible for the Super 8 double system sound device which made the small format movie cameras come to life with synchronous sound. Anyhow Merlin is a toy way ahead of it's time which could play "Echo", a game like Simon, Blackjack, Music Machine - replay a song you create, Magic Square (like Lights Out), and Mindbender (like Mastermind). If I only still had this game. But you can play it online here! (ONLY WITH IE) Thanks, Bob for the memories!
