Fans of music and engineering will be riveted by the process of making this Theremin Mini, a working build-it-yourself replica of the world's oldest electronic musical instrument. Part of Gakken's brilliant and popular Otona no Kagaku adult science project series, the unique sounds of the theremin will be even more melodious for having been assembled and created by your own hands.
Dating back to 1920, all you need are basic household tools to build this mini version of the theremin, and then customize or adapt it as your musical ambitions take you! You then "play" it by moving your hand close to the antenna. Electricians and composers of the world, unite! The theremin is back!
