The Ultimate Music Machine!

Now everyone can trainwreck a mashup from the palm of their hand! People are definitely going to love the Pacemaker or absolutely hate it. I can’t think of any situation where this device would actually be useful, but I wouldn’t mind playing around on it. Share your thoughts!

    Hmm. I really don’t know what to think of that. Either they’re making it out to be way cooler than it is, or it’s actually kinda fun. I wouldn’t mind messing around with it myself. Haha I don’t know about performing live with it, though.

  • hmm, its kind of cool. Just prooves that anyone can be a DJ nowadays. Kind of kills the title of someone that is a “real” DJ.

    Sure this is great, because u dont have to get all that fancy equipment etc just to mix a few tracks at a party. I can see this being a “step into” the DJ:ing world, as you learn how to beat mix, cross fade and play around with the basic DJ:ing functions…

    Anyone can be a DJ nowadays, i dont think so, if “anyone” was spinning tracks like Deadmau5, Dubfire, Prydz etc, they wouldnt be there….

  • that video is so eurotrashy!

    It looks like it should be sold in Toys-R-Us, if you ask me. But I’m just a negative thinker. On the bright side, could open up doors for some performance based DJs. Maybe dancing/dj-ing, something like that.

  • I read an article recently about a guy doing live performances using iphones, music producing programs and speakers attached to gloves that would somehow control the pitch of a tone produced… I am just realising that this is a total tangent but I guess it branched off the idea of performance based electronic devices.

  • a.e.

    Looks like a party for one. I wouldn’t mind having one, but can’t imagine myself DJing to a bunch of people.

  • I think in the “Tron meets Teletubbies” environment just about anything is fun.

    • Kyle

      hahahahaha so true.

    this is stupid, a waste of money, and totally cheating, and yes, i totally want one. GT

    I came up with this exact same idea three years ago for a graphic design class. I hate it when you think you have an original idea only to find out someone did it better, LOL. I would love one of these but they are a bit pricey and I think it might get boring after a while. I’d rather spend the money on a sampler.
