I wanted to develop something for wearable. The Theremin is a great instrument that embodies the magical spirit of technology that wearables bring to life.
What it does
Replicates a Theremin in a web browser via the Pebble smartwatch
How I built it
Transformed accelerometer data from the Pebble into frequency and amplitude modulation on a web audio synthesizer.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Making it work!
What I learned
Websockets, nginx is bad for websockets, a few other things
What's next for Pebble Theremin
More accurately emulating the joy of playing a theremin. Connecting multiple users to different instruments to create a collaborative music creation experience online.
This project was featured in Pebble's developer blog after the event.
