The song where most of use first heard a Theremin (though we may not have realised it at the time, I didn't) was the Beach Boys "Good Vibrations".  So I hope you'll soon be posting a video of you playing that on your Ukelele, multi-tracked on the PSoC Theremin?

Hi Max, When you get your Theremini (and I'm sure it will end up in your office...er..."Pleasure Dome"), you could post a short video comment with you playing it.

I had no idea -- I'll have to listen to it again as soon as I get a spare moment.

I think EE Times should buy me one for research purposes -- I could do a tear-down (said Max, hopefully :-)

@Max, what would you rather have: a ultra sleek Theremini or the joy of making one yourself?

I've already had the joy of making one myself -- now I'l like to play with one that works (LOL), so if you're offering to buy me one I'll take the ultra sleek Theremini :-)

Be brave! It's easier to beg forgiveness than it is to ask permission LOL

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
