DJing on an iPad is an interesting, if gimmicky, concept. But unless you're just using an iPad as a MIDI controller, simultaneously outputting sound while cueing up the next track isn't possible. Except now it is.

Cut past the nerdy hipster schtick, and—if you're not trying to DIY—the technical orientation. Starting at 5:20, these guys bust a surprisingly palatable mashup of Prince, Vampire Weekend, G'N'R, Eurythmics and... I Dream of Jeannie.
Meet Rana Sobhany. She puts together some great beats using only two iPads and some apps. No laptop or synth needed—this gal's an iPad DJ.
