NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – All the nerds are waving their iPads in the air like they just don’t care.

DJ Rana Sobhany is getting techies on the dance floor with her groovin’ beats made by using two Apple iPads and a simple DJ mixer.

She mixes and mashes sounds from applications that can be easily downloaded onto the device.

The “iPad DJ,” as she’s known, is a proud geek and amazed at the effect her jams have on the dweebs she plays for.

She says, “I’ve gotten tech people dancing. That’s the hardest thing to do. I’ve seen people ignore their surroundings and just start dancing.”

Some nerds even bust out their own iPads and boogie with them or swarm the DJ booth and try to touch her musical set-up.

Others use the “Lighter App” on their iPad which displays a lit cigarette lighter and hold it up to Sobhany to let her know she’s rocking their world.
