    I think I've heard of these before, no idea how they work though.
    Never really be interested in learning how to play one myself either.

    The hand that is above next to the tall antenna, is the one that controls the type of sound and what note, and the hand below by the loop antenna is the hand that controls the volume of the note. That's all i know, how the hell they work is a mystery to me.

    They work like how a bat sees. A bat uses sonar and reads how long it takes to come back to them, and from that they figure out how far away from everything they are.

    Theramins work in a similar way, in that your hand disrupts the magnetic force between the controls and affects the sound output based on this. I think it's magnetic, I can't remember.

    I alway thought it was heat or some shit. Time for wikipedia.

    anyway, these things are pretty cool I guess. and they aren't really all that expensive.
