Teletron: Mind-Controlled Theremin Makes Music With Your Thoughts

by Paul Strauss

If you thought that the way you play the theremin wasn’t weird enough, along comes a mod which allows you to make music with nothing more than your brain – no hands required.

Robert Schneider of The Apples in Stereo modded one of those Mattel Mindflex EEG games into a controller interface for an analog synthesizer. Here’s a video of Robert doing his geeky best to make music with his mind…YouTube Preview Image

The more Robert thinks, the higher the pitch. The less Robert thinks, the lower the pitch. To me, it seems like it would be pretty difficult to actually play anything resembling a song with the rig, but that’s just me.

Want to try it for yourself? Robert has been kind enough to provide this brief instructional video for you guys who want to give it a go…

    I really want to control my theremin with my mind now! This is fantastic! I did an entire album http://tinyurl.com/39q9tx2 dedicated to the Theremin on http://www.neokitsch.com, but it all feels so futile now that you can control it with your thoughts. The next thing I need is a device which makes a film or animation of my dreams!
    Thanks for the post.
