A blog FOR Laptop Ninjas, not about them.
A Laptop Ninja is a cousin of the more common Web Ronin. As a solitary figure who's skills with computer technology and design, the Laptop Ninja survives by performing contract work from cafes, public parks, and sometimes rooftops. The Laptop Ninja's sword is his 802.11 connection, his iPod his throwing stars, and his Bluetooth cellphone his Nunchucks. All of which are usually carried in a discreet messenger bag.

Goodbye Kid Koala, Mixmaster Mike and Q-Bert, Hello DJ 101, DJ 110, and DJ 111
is just what it sounds like, a robot that scratches, though I don't think you could call it freestyle anymore. It's an interesting project that may have a future with lame bands that have added scratching to their acts in order to look hip, however DJing is one of the most subjective 'instruments' out there, so beyond a novelty I doubt this will go anywhere. Super cool geek project though!
