Turn Your iPad Into A DJ Station With Turntables And Suction Cups

iPad docks featuring a set of compact turntables for DJs who like to travel light are nothing new. But ION Audio has come up with a small collection of suction-cuppable accessories that turn the iPad itself into a pair of decks and a mixer on the cheap.

Serious turntablists will probably want to stay well clear of the company's new Scratch 2 Go kit, which uses capacitive-compatible wheels, cross faders and dials to interact with various DJ apps. But that's also why ION Audio will sell it for only around $US40, starting in May. You're never going to see it in use in a real club, but for those who want to try their hand at deejaying, it's a cheap way to get started. [Ion Audio via Cnet]
