The Mind-Controlled Theremin is Here

by on September 9, 2010

Yeah, you read the title right. Apples in Stereo frontman Robert Schneider has created a theremin controlled simply by his mind, which he calls the Teletron. That’s right: you can now control an analog synth simply by using your brain. The pitch changes with the amount of brain activity. Up with more brain activity, and down with less.

Schneider uses a modified toy made by Mattel, called the Mindflex, along with a Moog synthesizer through an analog delay pedal.

There are two videos below. The first one is Schneider explaining the Teletron and demonstrating how it works, the second contains step-by-step instructions for how to make one yourself! Cool!
