DJ’s love using all kinds of strange setups for their scratching pleasure, but this instant turntable technology has to be the craziest DJ workstation that I’ve ever seen. Designed by DJ MoCap to work with the Traktor digital DJ system, this homemade controller lets you use drawings as replacements for records.
Don’t expect to be able to make one of these yourself. For now, MoCap says he’s “keeping part of the system secret because it a little different from traditional motion capture approach.” MoCap’s top secret system uses a camera to recognize movements within hand-drawn circles on any surface to make real time scratching effects. This visual turntable technology is the perfect solution for audiophiles who want to throw house parties in cramped studio apartments like mine.
