|dance like you really mean it*

last Tuesday, one of our regular gaming group, D, brought along a laptop with an open source dance game, and a dance mat. I'm easily hooked by such things, and had a great time, and now I *want* one. The game itself is quite easily obtained (go here) for Windows, Mac OS X or Linux, and there are many many many songs that can be downloaded, at least some of which I recognise (Roxette! umm, there was another one, but I've forgotten what it was now).
The stumbling block is getting a dance pad. Which really, is the important bit for the real enjoyment of the game. D pointed out that I need to get a pad with a USB connector, or be willing to modify it appropriately. Unfortunately, it looks like that is going to be quite the effort - EB Games only has them for the Wii (and has incompetent staff, who continued to say 'for which system' after I pointed out I wanted a USB connector), somewhere else I went only had one for the PS2. We ventured into JB HiFi, but it was late on the Saturday afternoon, and we got distracted by the box sets, and didn't actually find any dance mats (which might not have been there anyway). So, if anyone *knows* where I might be able to find such a thing (preferably in Perth, but I'm willing to consider online purchase) I'd really appreciate it!
