Future Technology: DJ Qbert’s Extraterrestria is World’s First Interactive Album Packaging [VIDEO]

Novalia-PrintedMIDIDJQBert2

Extraterrestria is DJ Qbert’s long-awaited follow up to his groundbreaking debut album, Wave Twisters (2001), and it features a pretty next level album cover. The printed cover is actually a set of functional Bluetooth MIDI decks and DJ controller that connects to iOS and OSX, making it the world’s first interactive album packaging.

QBert’s company Thud Rumble collaborated with Algoriddim and Novalia to create an album cover that allows fans to manipulate the album (or any mp3s) by moving their fingers along the surface. Apparently most of the copies will be going to those that funded the project on Kickstarter, with a small number made available through Thud Rumble.

Watch the video below to see it in action!

    So cool!!!

    • it’s like a way better version of those old bday cards you’d get where you’d press on the card and it would play a song

  • Nathan Butcher

    An update of the old art covers like Led Zeppelin III. Definitely going this way on my next project!

  • First of all welcome back to the world DJ Qbert. Last time I saw him was like a DMC competition in 1999. But he obviously hasn’t lost his chops as an audio visionary. Can’t wait to listen.
