The novelty of having bikes and music in one conception is as difficult as concocting a solution made of oil and water. And, no; we are not talking about biking and listening to music at the same time, as in our experience that causes more road accidents than just being innovative. However, regarding the question of aforementioned novelty, we daresay that we have come across an ingenious contrivance that aptly fuses the vivacity of music and the expertise of biking. Enter the 'Turntable Rider'; an advanced music generating bike crafted by engineers from COGOO, a Japanese bike sharing system.
Basically, the contraption entails a fully converted BMX bike that acts a mobile DJ set up. This maneuverable system corresponds to various notes of contemporary music with its individual mechanical parts. For example, when the rider pedals the wheels, they act as jog dials to shuttle through the music. This intriguing combination is extended to other parts like the brakes act as the sound pad, while a built-in gyroscopic motion sensor poses as the fader pad.
Finally, coming to its functional nature, the whole musical range in fed into this bike mechanism via Apple's iPhone and iPad. As we can see in the video, the musical and maneuvering continuum is aptly maintained by some deft riding and DJing skills. And, for those who are really interested, the Turntable Rider will make its debut appearance at KAIKOO POPWAVE FESTIVAL 2012 later this month.
