Hasn’t Technology Destroyed The Art Of DJing?

Touch Screen Turntable
The ATTIGO TT was created by Scott Hobbs, a student at Dundee University studying innovative product design. For his final year project he has created a touch screen turntable that lets DJ’s loop, sample and scratch wave formskinda like you would a record. The size of the touchtable is approximately the same as a standard turntable, making the physical interaction nearly the same. Where this takes off is in the flexibility and features included right at your fingertips, no longer locked up on a computer screen. The ATTIGO TT is currently a working prototype, and Scott is looking for manufacturers to partner with.

Not really “just like turntables,” but interesting nonetheless. While you can technically put some “eargoggles” on to use this, it is in no way close to the true art of Turntablism.
