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.
