Make your own Arduino Theremin with light control

Once again Australian Arduino enthusiast and video producer MrHobbyelectronics a has produced another interesting and easy to follow video tutorial for an Arduino-based project. In this example we learn how to make an Arduino-powered theremin, a device which can generate various sounds depending on the ambient light level.

It's a fun project for beginners, and the video explains in simple terms how to connect the hardware, and demonstrates the final results. To make your own, simply view the following video:

The required Arduino sketch is also supplied and can be found in the video details page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're looking to detect changes in light levels, don't fool about with irregular light-dependent resistors. Instead use our LIGHT: light sensor module with the TEMT6000 light sensor which gives consistent and repeatable readings even between different units. Simple to use and versatile for many applications. For more information and to order,click here.
