Is it a bicycle, or a turntable?
Japanese interaction artist Toshiyuki Sugai has come up with a prototype, Turntable Rider, for a bike sharing company that turns bikes into a DJ console. In this video, pro BMX rider Kotaro Tanaka gives it a spin.
According to Designboom, the pair will be performing at this year's Popwave festival in Tokyo and Cogoo might consider mass production of the Turntable Rider if there's enough interest on Facebook.
