Molly, I know all this DJ “tool” anger is coming from a place of jealousy. Deep down, I think you really just want--nay, NEED--your own DJ flyer. Thankfully, I’m here to fill that need.
Btw, before you get too harsh on the graphics, I actually shot that background image as an experimental tossing of my camera into the air. I would never have used it in this way, but why steal someone else’s lame background when I had one of my own? And, I’m sure I could have done a better job, but why waste too much time on a joke, right?
“Lite-Brite” device goes HD!…
The Luminodot packs a super-dense 70×50 grid, which accommodates 3,500 light pegs on a slick HDTV-looking frame.

It won’t work with the 3G iPhone.
