Turntable Rider morphs your BMX bike into a turntable for DJ’ing on wheels
A team of creative engineers at Cogoo – a Japanese bike-sharing service – has given a BMX bike an amazing facelift that turns it into a turntable. The pair of wheels, using a DJ toolkit that comes packed in a Pelican hard suitcase, creates real deep beats as the rider jumps and plays tricks on the bike. The project is named ‘Turntable Rider.’ The project transforms wheels of the bike into jog wheel, brakes in to sound samplers, and the handlebars into a crossfader.
As the professional rider applies brakes or jumps on rear or front wheel, the wirelessly connected setup receives transmitted sounds and sends them to high-end floor-standing speaker resting in one corner through iPhone or iPod to produce real rhythmic beats.
