DJ equipment has come a long way since its vinyl-scratching days, and now Beatsurfing: The Music Production Interface app takes this to a whole new level.

This application completely obliterates the recognizable features of a turntable, and revamps the interface to be much more user-friendly. The application is used on a touchscreen device, and looks like a mess of colored, geometric shapes without any purpose. When the user begins to mix music, however, it becomes a music-making machine. By dragging one's fingers from circle to circle, tracks can be changed, scratched and skewed for mixing beats.

The designers have taken a brand new step with this design, which changes the style of disc jockey music.
