A theremin is a musical instrument1 that you play without touching. Two antennas pick up the movements of your hands, and translate them into pitch and volume. They rock. They’re also quite expensive. They’re on my Things To Own In An Ideal World list, sandwiched between an armonica and a trichobezoar. None of these are likely to happen any time soon.
Except, I might have a chance at a theremin, as someone has built one from a wiimote. I MUST DO THIS.
Gotta get a Wii first, mind.
