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!
