Whole Earth catalog a number of years ago reviewed one of these kids 
101 electronics project kits that was built along the same lines.

It was little plastic cubes and each cube contained a discrete 
component or transistor.  They had either a sliding interlock or 
magnetic clasp ( forget which ) that would allow you to clip them
together to form circuits.  English I think...

Interesting idea!  Have it 16 by 10 and run the 16 outputs from a 
sequencer along the top.  Big flashy lights... <grin>

The bottom row would input to your amplifiers.
