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.

    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.

      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.
