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.

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