While searching for videos produced by Intel, this one piqued my interest. According to people at Thud Rumble, “the turntable is their only way to express themselves”. While some of the DJs rely on laptops, the ones at Thud Rumble reinvented the norm, and merged the classic and the modern.
What they did is they replaced the chip of their Traktor Kontrol Z2 with Intel Edison. The latter became the “brain” of the turntable, basically eliminated the use of laptops to control both audio playback and full production.
The full geeky process they did are detailed on DJTechTools’ website.
Intel has been at the forefront of technology and innovation. Thud Rumble’s exhibition of innovation, powered by Intel Edison, is just one of the fascinating results and contribution of Intel.
Apart from innovation, Intel is also engaged in bringing technology and hope to more people. Last 2015, Intel Foundation partnered with DepEd and PBSP to open the doors of the new Sto.Nino Elementary School. They didn’t just reopen the school, but they also opened the eyes of the students to wonders of technology as they gave away “unbreakable” laptops to the school.
