The holiday season is the perfect time to build something beautiful. To celebrate the winter month I produced this White Christmas Special Edition 2017 of the Open.Theremin V3 for you. The logos and printings in true gold turned out so beautiful. Combine it with some nice wood working and you get a fully playable theremin instrument. Get the kit now in the online store here.

I am very happy to share with you that Open.Theremin V3 now has a MIDI code to control various synthesizers. Vincent Dhamelincourt, an experienced electronics and firmware engineer from Lunel, France has written a very nice code an provided it to all of us. With this extra code the Open.Theremin plays as serial midi, USB HID midi or even through a MIDI DIN connector. It's a lot of fun. See my video here.

I just uploaded some more pictures of Open Theremin case builds here. It's great to see all your creative work and contributions. The Theremin shown below, a stand-alon system containing an active speaker and an amplifier was made by Virginia in collaboration with a friend. She wrote "the experience has been really smooth considering that we were total beginners in dealing with code and soldering" and "Open sourcing is the way to go to stimulate interest and bring knowledge into everyday life" - Thank you for the great feedback Virginia.

This weekend (6./7. May 2017) Open.Thermin will be at Make Munich, South Germany‘s biggest maker and do-it-yourself festival. My friends from the "Center for Alternative Coconut Research" invited me to join them on their booth in the "electronic innovators" sector. Looking forward to it and hope to see some of you there for a chat and some theremin playing. Booth No.11.
