Cogoo has turned a BMX bike into a music turntable that lets you mix tracks on the go. The Japanese bike-sharing program created the Turntable Rider, which has tweaked features. Cogoo has turned the wheels of the bicycle into turntables, the handlebars into the crossfader, and the brakes into samplers. The bike can be wirelessly connected to the DJ app Traktor to let the rider perform some unique tricks while blasting out some cool mixes.

Watch the video below to see Cogoo’s Turntable Rider in action. No word yet if the bike will be made available commercially, but it will be featured at a few events in Japan, starting with the 2012 Kaikoo Popwave Festival.
