This is cool from a technical standpoint but I don't get why he has this hooked into VDJ which does its own scratching.
because the CD doesn't have music on it, it's just an interface. Needs software to emulate the music.
Oh, I see. So it's like a weird, MacGuyvered Final Scratch.

Meh. It looks more cleverer than it is. The optical mouse is just tracking the speed and direction of the disc, the drive itself is just added visual complexity to give the impression the guy actually made something.
When people get pissy and call people hipster douches or Nathan Barleys, they mean this sort of thing.
In BBBS defense, I looked up the software, and it pretty much handles the scratching for you and ensures that you never go off the beat. That pretty much takes all the artistry out of this
The drive is an inexpensive source of a good bearing, which would maek this a lot more playable.
Oh, and I agree about software DJing being a bit suspect if you use the automatic beatmatching features.
If you are doing fake scratches like he is, you better bring more to the table than that, as it takes little skill (but still sounds cool). If something's beatmatching for you you better be doing something else creative. His scratching - meh. His little "invention" - great.

Is that skateboard or a dong drawn on his desk?

Somebody call Nintendo...
There's another useless Wiimote peripheral to market.

I would be more for this if he was producing something that didn't sound like crap.
