Touch Screen Turntables

Posted: May 23, 2008 in Technology

Many times the first people to utilize a new technology is the entertainment industry. Companies figure that if there products are seen being used in the public by performance figures that the consumers will flock to the stores. In many cases this might be true, especially with the technology of touch screens. The ATTIGO TT touch screen turntable is one awesome looking piece of gear. And while the number of professional DJs might not be enough to make us go totally crazy for the ATTIGO, it certainly is damn cool.

Created by Scott Hobbs, a student at Dundee University studying innovative product design, the ATTIGO TT lets DJ’s loop, sample and scratch the actual wave forms of the music using two touch screen displays.

The ATTIGO is about the same size as a traditional turntable, which makes physical interaction a pretty easy transition for the working DJ. The display removes the computer screen and allows you to interact directly with the music.

Currently the ATTIGO is only a working prototype, but Hobbs is working on getting the device into the public market.
