Theremins and laser harps!

What it does

We hacked a flashy theremin-inspired song machine! Plays different notes depending on how far an object is from the sensor, and flashes corresponding lights on the LED strip.

How I built it

With collaboration from Dan and help from Luke, using what I learned in the hardware workshops, and a lot of trial and error.

Challenges I ran into

Pro tip: go one step at a time and clean up that clutter :) Hardware gets messy!

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It can play a recognizable song, and we finished a project idea that only came into inception at 5AM.

What I learned

I learned how to Arduino, how to hardware, and how awesome LEDs are :D
