Wacom, long known for their touch tablets, unveiled their product aimed at DJs over the weekend.

Inside the Nextbeat are two digital players, a mixer, effects board and simpler.  At the core of the device is a removable touch sensitive mixer that looks like it can operate wirelessly or while docked.  Although I don’t know the actual weight or size of the Nextbeat it is apparently light weight and requires no computer, making it ideal for disc jockeys on the road.

The Nextbeat will hit the US and Japan this Summer for an unknown price.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
