Working on a new Design

With all the feedback I got on the Open.Theremin and with 1000 kits sold I am working on a new version of the open source theremin. The new version should include great features such as fully automatic calibration, new design, 4 potentiometer, manual adjustments like on a real theremin and refined oscillators. I also ported the design to KiCAD the open source layout software. Stay tuned for more details. If you want to be informed when the first batch of the new theremins are ready, please use this form.

Protoype of new Open.Theremin

Thank you for all your interest in the Open.Theremin. I got many requests for the new version already and I am working on finishing the new design. For those of you who like to have a first look I uploaded some screen-shots and prototype files here. Also you can still suggest improvements. I hope to have first boards available by October if all goes well. If you want to be informed when the first batch of the new theremins are ready, you can still uses this form.

Open Data

With the last batch of theremins sold out we reached 1000 theremins. That is amazing and I want to take the opportunity to look back and think about where to go next. So I made a new page with some historical data and maps that I want to share with you. See here.
