A classical theremin is a musical instrument that uses principles of physics to allow the player to control pitch and volume without touching the instrument. Our team aspired to utilize leap motion, a hand motion tracking device to create a digital theremin that is capable of much more than a classical, physical theremin. With our theremin, users will be able to use one hand to control volume and pitch. They can even change the tone of the music, ranging from single synth waves to chords. Right now, our theremin supports 5 different tones. However, this can easily be extended to include many more tones including piano tones. In addition, the app can be accessed anywhere since it is a webapp (if we buy a domain).
