iTurntable Digital Music Dock

These days there are plenty of tactile input options for the digital DJ that try to recreate the traditional UI. Most of these are newer devices are vestigial rotary encoders tacked onto purpose-built decks. If you’re not a DJ, but would like to recreate the tactile experience of an old phonograph with your digital music device, check out this charming iTurntable iPhone dock from maker Austin Yang. You’ll still get the slow set of the swing arm to initiate play, but instead of placing the needle directly on the track, you can use the arm to skip ahead or back up. If this retro technology mashup seems familiar, you’ll want to also check out Austin’s Mechanical Typewriter Keyboard for iPad I blogged about earlier.
