Create sound effects with a Theremin

 For something fun and different, consider building your own Theremin. This is a simple device that generates a radio wave and send the frequency to the Arduino to be converted to a simple sound matching the frequency. The term "theremin" comes from the effect that occurs when a person (or conductive material) comes close to the antenna (shown below) and causes the frequency of the oscillator to change. 

For more information, complete plans and a video demonstration, visit the project page here. And we're on twitter, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When creating projects with external circuitry to work with an  project - consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with
