The Turntable Rider by Cogoo is what happens when you combine a BMX bike and DJ station. This sensory add-on attaches to any BMX bike and turns it into a interactive real time mix station. The wheels of the bike act as jog wheels, the brakes become beat pads and there’s even a gyroscopic sensor that doubles as a fader mounted to the handle bars. These inputs are then sent to a computer program via bluetooth, which alters the beat according to the bike’s movement. The more intricate and advance the tricks, the better the beat.
There’s no word on when Cogoo will be able to start shipping the Turntable Rider. Although it’s certainly been getting plenty of buzz recently. The prospect of a dueling BMX / DJ competition is just too amazing not to happen.
