The Turntable Rider [1] is a brilliant invention that transforms any regular bicycle into a roving DJ booth! Developed by Japan-based company Cogoo [2], the gadget allows bikers to emit melodies as they ride. After a few minor adaptations – the brake pads become sound pads and the wheels become jog wheels – your bike can make the daily bike commute while making the lives of people around you a little more musical.

At the moment the accessory is just a concept model, but if it reaches a target of 5,900 Facebook likes Cogoo says it would consider making the idea a reality! The company is well-versed in digital bike technology and they previously developed a bike sharing service operator that could lock and unlock bicycles using a phone app. Now they’ve moved into the world of playful bike gadgets to bring out the DJ in all of us, and you can check out their demo video here [3]. And don’t forget to “like” their page and maybe we’ll hear a Turntable Rider in our neighborhoods before too long.
