The majority of the noids on the market are "off the shelf" from the pneumatics industry.

When I was a kid, I worked at a factory that had shelves and shelves of electric solenoids, rams (clippard, bimba, pneumadyne, etc), qevs, regs, etc.

When I got bored, I'd waste my time imagining what I could build with all that crap.
