For theremin fans, there's a very enjoyable new novel out now, inspired by the life of Lev Termen:

"Us Conductors is a beautiful, haunting novel inspired by the true story of the Russian scientist, inventor and spy Lev Termen - creator of the theremin - and of Clara Rockmore - its greatest player."

"Roving from Manhattan speakeasies to the Siberian taiga, from Alcatraz to the Kremlin, this is a book of love and electricity, jazz and espionage - filled with music, longing, and a little kung fu."

@Max: Be brave! It's easier to beg forgiveness

LOL. You are tricky. Maybe damngoodengineer has a damngoodpoint: How about using a Leap Motion controller instead?

@Susan: Signing off on such a thing is above my pay grade, Max!

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

@Susan: ...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 :-)

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

@David: I hope you'll soon be posting a video of you playing that on your Ukelele, multi-tracked on the PSoC Theremin?

Hope springs eternal...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
