Control lights (power outlets) via MIDI

I'm looking to control lights (power outlets) via MIDI.  The technology works like this:  The MIDI out of a computer is sent to a processing unit which is then attached to a series of power outlets.  Each power plug is assigned to a midi channel, and the "on"/"off" signals of the MIDI out turn the corresponding power outlet on or off.  I'm looking for the MIDI processing unit / power plug unit (I've seen them combined and seperated into two.  I'd like to have at least a dozen outlets...I believe they can be chained.

I know it can be done because I've seen it in action, I just can't remember the name of the gear / technology.  A link to the gear or tutorial would be great!  Thanks!
