Morpho DJ App for Turntablists!

Here's something new and interesting! The iPhone, iPod, and iPad have been getting lots of DJ Software releases these days but none of them work quite like this Morpho DJ app that has just hit the scene. Developed by Nick Bryan and Ge Wang at Stanford University, the Morpho DJ app allows DJ's to mount an iPod touch or iPhone onto each platter where the record would normally spin and the gyro and accelerometer data gets sent wirelessly to a laptop where the data is used to control the playback of digital files. Video and information inside.

Here's something new and interesting! The iPhone, iPod, and iPad have been getting lots of DJ Software releases these days but none of them work quite like this Morpho DJ app that has just hit the scene. Developed by Nick Bryan and Ge Wang at Stanford University, the Morpho DJ app allows DJ's to mount an iPod touch or iPhone onto each platter where the record would normally spin and the gyro and accelerometer data gets sent wirelessly to a laptop where the data is used to control the playback of digital files. The screen of the iPod or iPhone actually displays the waveform of the digital track while playback is in effect. It's sort of like timecode CD's and Vinyl that are currently used in software setups (i.e. Traktor, Serato, etc.), without the hassle of purchasing an additional soundcard or making extra cable connections. We'll try to get our hands on this software as soon as its released, but for now, just check the video above!
