Sound and light board with 4-5 smooth objects - which objects are on the board and where changes the sounds and lights, including light from some of the objects ... what is this thing and where can I get one?

I'd been at a co-worker's party drinking vodka because he was really into the Atkins diet (different story), three of us started playing with a crazy sound and light board (about 6" x 6") that was white or silver. It had circles or something on it (different sizes and places on the board) and when the 4 or 5 different objects/shapes were on the board they interacted with it (and it with they) to make different sounds and lights.
I think this a learning toy for children in alternative learning environments, probably those who are quite young and certainly creative.
It was mesmerizing, I'd like to find out what it was and possibly buy one. Google has failed me, though a friend suggested that it was similar to a device someone used on stage with Bjork during a show at the Shoreline Amphitheater in California a few years ago.
Any ideas mefites?
