That sad, empty feeling when the last slice of pizza gets eaten might be a little easier to bare now that Pizza Hut in the UK will be packing its pies in special boxes that turn into a pair of playable DJ decks, complete with mixer, letting you follow up dinner with some jams.


Video: Think DJs just check email on their computer when they're DJ-ing? You're not alone! But when they actually spin instead of just pushing the play button, there's a lot more going on. Here's DJ Enferno showing us all how it's done. It's a little performative, obviously, but he's balancing a lot of things at once and it's so much fun to see.


Every quarter-aged hipster wants to be a DJ at point or another. The only problem is that DJing is actually a really expensive hobby, if you do it right. (And by right, I mean legally.) It used to be that you needed turntables, a mixer, an audio interface, crates of records, a controller and at least one sweet-looking set of headphones. That was then. This is now.


Unless you're incredibly organised, it's highly likely that you have different music tracks dotted around different devices, which can turn digital deejaying from a celebration of music to a mess of jumbled cables. Pioneer's new digital decks, however, swap wires for Wi-Fi.


Pushing the limits of what can be considered an iPod/iPhone dock, Philips' FWP3200D is like an all-in-one DJ stage show with a pair of 5.25-inch subwoofers that glow and pulse to your music -- and a set of digital turntables letting you mix and scratch your beats.


We all hit play. It's no secret. When it comes to "live" performance of electronic dance music -- that's about the most it seems you can do anyway. It's not about performance art, it's not about talent either (really it's not). In fact, let me do you and the rest of the EDM world button pushers who hate me for telling you how it is, a favour and let you all know how it is.


COGOO, a Japanese bike-sharing service, has invented the most face-melting way to ride on a pair of wheels. It took a BMX bike and turned it into a DJ toolkit so that jumps and tricks become fresh beats.


There are already plenty of apps that mimic old-school turntablism, but Morpho DJ is an app that lets you mix tracks with your iPhone or iPod touch while keeping the analogue turntables at your fingertips. Very cool.
