The video (above) of the Laser Beam Music Generator is dorky, but the premise is interesting: six laser beams, 64 music sequences and 19 genres for some crazy solo jam sessions.
Great for mixing songs quickly, portably and with minimal equipment, the IDJ2 iPod Mixing Station allows you to play and mix two songs from a single iPod simultaneously.
