Theremin: feasibility?

Post by Jennifer_RRE » Sun Nov 24, 2019 6:07 am

Hey ladies and gents,

I was thinking it might be fun to make [something kind of like] a theremin with BOE Bot or something similar.

Seems like BOE Bot could run a loop, using the Ping)))Dar to get distance (to a hand, eg) and then outputting a frequency [to a speaker] based on that distance. Seems like you could make a pretty crude (and probably annoying :) instrument similar (sort of) to a Theremin.

What do you guys think? Foresee any pitfalls? Have any suggestions?

What kind of hardware could be used to make something a little more polished?
