The Virtual Theremin

Theremin mimicry using a webcam

The Virtual Theremin aims to mimic the Theremin using just a computer and a cheap web camera. It tracks the hands of a performer around a picture of a Theremin superimposed on the video stream.

The positions of the hands are then converted to sound that mimics the response of the Theremin. The zip file contains 6 files (install.bat, sample.bmp, sample.wav, vt.exe, virtualinstrument.ax, license.html).

 Instructions for use

Unzip vt.zip. Double click on install. You should now have a running copy of vt.exe if all goes well. The files are installed in a folder called VT on your main hard drive (C:VT ).

The Virtual Theremin is beta status. Minimum requirements 128MB RAM (the program requires 90MB). A Web Camera. DirectX 8.0 or greater. For more details, follow the link to the author's homepage.
