My math teacher showed this to our class and I thought it was pretty awesome.

For those of you who do not know what a theramin is, it was one of the first electronic instruments invented and it uses the principle of two antennas, one manipulating pitch frequency and the other manipulating the volume of output signal.

The slightest change of your right hand (the antenna standing up that controls pitch) will alter the pitch, so an experienced theramin player can play an entire scale with only slight hand movements. Furthermore, by using the volume antenna, you can create rhythms by moving closer to the antenna to lower the volume.

I have played on a theramin before, and they are really fun. Also, since it's so old, themes such as the Twilight theme and the like use a theramin.
