2 Pretty much.  Though - porn being defined as pictures of things you want but can't have, this might not apply.  The devices above range from around $150 for the Logitech G19 up to $1198 for the Ableton Push bundled with the full Ableton Live Suite.  I think the whole lot would add up to about $4000.

This, though, is definitely porn:
The Davinci Resolve colour correction desk.  A steal at $30,000.

3 Well, $4000 total down to the Ableton Push.  The five video editing decks below that would come to about $6000 altogether.

Prices start at just $69,995.

5 Does it come in plaid?  For that price, it should be available in plaid.

6 The farther down the page I went, the more I thought of that iOS game where you have multiple people frobbing controls on control panels.  Can't remember the name but Penny Arcade did a cartoon on it a while back.
How is frob not in the dictionary?  It's a perfectly cromulent word!
Cromulent's not in the dictionary either!
