How a DJ pops a wheelie (video)


Could this be how the DJ of the future mixes tracks? (Dan Kitwood - GETTY IMAGES)
What if, instead of minding the sound mix in a catbird seat above the dance floor, the DJ was on a bicycle riding around the party?

Japanese bike-sharing company Cogoo has built a device that can put the music mixer on wheels. The Turntable Rider turns the wheels of a BMX bicycle into turntables, the handbrakes into samplers and the handlebars into a crossfader. The product is not yet available for sale.

The video has been making its way around the Web, since it appeared on YouTube on Friday:

The company also put together a behind-the-scenes video showing off the technology and how it came together.

What do you think: Would you want your DJ riding around your next party?

Thanks to PSFK for putting this in my path today.
