Timothy Wisdom’s D’Groove is a digital haptic
force feedback turntable. D’Groove takes digital music control further than products like
FinalScratch. The platter has four divisions marked on it; each line represents one beat in a measure. Every time the record makes a full rotation it plays a full measure. The force feedback allows you to actually feel where the beats are.
The Q-Slider represents where in the song you are. As the song progresses, the slider moves to match. If you grab the handle it’s like picking up the record needle. Sliding the handle you can feel the intensity of the track. There are a lot of other features and possibilities that I haven’t covered. Check out the video on the site to see it in action.
