DJ Sound Control Transforms a Laptop Into a Tune Blasting Machine

— September 2, 2011 — Tech
While the DJ Sound Control may have the words 'Lenovo' scribbled on it, the company actually has nothing to do with it. Instead, this incredible PC mod comes from the mind of Chris Blarksy who decided to transform the laptop into a music blasting item.

The DJ Sound Control essentially takes Lenovo's A700 model laptop and re-imagines it as a turntable. Considering how just about every DJ relies on laptops nowadays, this is a fitting modification. The screen opens up and reveals an entire control rig including two turntables, a crossfader and other little knobs that's perfect for mixing, scratching and making beats with. There's even a sliding drawer underneath that can accommodate a keyboard. This is one of the best uses of a laptop -- you know, outside of surfing the net.
