Openlabs planning PC-based groovebox/DJ rig

Openlabs (the people who build really expensive, fireproof PCs into keyboard-shaped boxes) have a teaser on their website for Miko, which looks like being a PC with built in DJ controls (crossfader & triggers), plus video outputs for VJs. Seems like the kind of thing that will make someone rich very happy to retire their laptop & bundle of controllers. The sound card is obviously a Presonus Firebox with the logo rubbed off. I wonder if they're planning to put a Trigger Finger in there and call it an M-PC?
UPDATE: They've just announced it will have 37 keys, so perhaps it's more like a Nord Modular G2 with a DJ crossfader...

Hi Tom,

Well, I will say, it's cool that someone is thinking creatively about form factor. I promise I'll get an up-close look at NAMM for you and give it a final decision.

deffo a vj tool. Looks promising.. HighDef ready.
