Build An Optical Theremin
The Theremin That Uses LightAn Instructables by Sacred
A theremin is an instrument that can be played without being touched. Theremins use antennas and oscillators to sense a person's hand and generate a tone. This Instuctable by Sacred will be designed using light instead. Because of this, it is not an actual theremin, it just uses similar principles.
