The GoLink! is an inexpensive one sensor at a time choice. I've tried it and like it quite a bit. They work with force sensors, temperature probes and many other sensors. The motion detectors do not work on the GoLink!, but there is a usb version of the motion detector.
I have a bunch of old ULI stuff at work. I'll check to see if anything I've got would be helpful for you.

I'm not very familiar with those ULIs, but I had thought they were
pre-USB, serial-port only devices. There are serial-to-usb
adapters, but not every version works well for interfaces. Some
info from vernier that might be useful:

The Vernier Labpro has both USB and serial connections
(and BTA inputs). They can usually be found on ebay for around
$100 or so.

You might want to take a look at the new Labquest Mini, which
does a lot of what the Labpro does and is $150, new. It
needs a relatively new version of Logger Pro, though.

Vernier has a decent selection of adapters, most for $5:
