The #Lightsaber Theremin! This took quite a bit of working out. but now its all working and worked out! you can try! simply using a sparkfun accelerometer. the samples. and sound will be available on my patreon soon! aswell as info prior to it going up on my site:- needless to say patreon is keeping me alive at the minute! thanks very much to all your support, which is giving me the time and funds to keep building silly machines! Links to those sparkfun accelerometers :- how about those nifty voltage displays super cheap!? CHECK OUT MY MUSIC ON SPOTIFY :- Paypal :- Thanks for all the support, as the above is how i keep this project afloat, as i don't think i'd be able to develop projects like the furby organ and gameboy mega machine otherwise so thanks! :D. Patreon :- Facebook :- Website :- Instagram :- Always looking for old gear! to mod or conserve in the "museum of everything else" one day :P always on the hunt for old things to do videos with! :-


Dubious Engineering : I was wondering what to do with my spare light sabres!!!.... now it’s all clear!!! ... these are not the furbys you’re looking for....

Adamant Consternation : So would the next step be to build an accelerometer suit? :D

GLTCatman : This is GOD TIER content for my wet eyes to feast upon! I. NEED. MORE.

D. D. C. : You deserve a bigger audience!


S.S. Sarah : You mad, mad, brilliant man.

Its Schwarbage : Some of those star wars joke just didn't land-o

Woochia's Beats & Bobs : This is genius!! These light saber theremin sounds could fit so perfectly in any trap/dubstep/techno song, and it looks like so much fun to play with. Your channel really drives me more and more toward this snap snap chopy chop soldery sorcery. I've already got to step 1: buy a soldering iron. Now I've got to go to step 2: use it.

Smooth. : oh mate this would be amazing for some dubstep type music

Cheapo : i was here before it went viral!

Cable Vamp : These actually seem useful. When you were doing the wubble with the blue saber it sounded sick as hell.

Juest Zungo : neat. although a gyroscope could've been useful, it's considered more robust than an accelerometer, plus the latter needs a magnet to define the origin

Izsak Ahmed : Sam i think I'm in love with you

Franko : @Sam you're one extremely multitalented chap! :)

Gubber Dude : 4:00 sounds genuinely like a death grips song

gunnaralv : This is real Gold!! Damn! One of the best!

Wolfen : Look mum I'm a Jedi now!

Paul Lammers : "I didn't say I was good at it." Proceeds to prove incredible aptitude.

Romain J. : You just simply rocks !! Greets from France ♥️

112358miau : I did a theremin with 3 fm radios Guess I should upgrade that thing and learn a bit more.

Wagoo : Smashing stuff! That idea.. Vader-good-video (oof)

SCOTT GODON-DECOTEAU : #jedidancemoves

Subsonic - Beatbox Tutorials : This is awesome man :) I need to give this a go and the dubstep wobs at 4:30 are so sick :D I would love to collaborate with you :) I have kp3s :)

SomethingSomething Dark Side 94 : What’s the point of the bell? Isn’t that what the subscription button was for?

Jas Van Aarde : this channel is the best

Testoh Toby : It sounded more like Fart Wars 😂 btw great as usual ❤️👌🎛️🎚️

OhFishyFish : This is more 90's than all of the 1990's shows combined.

Link 2089 : Would this work just plugged into an regular clean sounding guitar amp

Don Workman : This is incredible. Much love. You deserve the world.

GoldenStar Music - Music & Tutorials : He put a whole new meaning to beat saber 😂💞

UniversaL : Could you tell us about FM modulation? Pleease ^^

Krmpfpks : I have seen a patch of daylight in your room. Be careful!


fil k : Did you also make an analog sample cutting, uploading machine? :P Great project! Love it!

SatanicJamnic : You NEED to create New Trilogy meme song about having higher ground(s) (on your circuit boards, get it?!). That would be viiiiiiiiraaaal and hillarous. PLEASE DO IIIIIIIIT

Christian Stuck : Could you do a diy ring modulator video? They look pretty simple, but there aren't any really simple instructions out there.

Kosmo : Next promoter for the jedi church? Or the grandmaster of sith Chapel? You sir are a mad scientist and your creativity is grand inspiring. Thank you for sharing ideas of utter mad inspiration.

Ian Johnstone : I continued to be astounded. This needs to be a stage show!

Alex Benedikt : Damn you remind me of Rick Sanchez!!!👍😂😂

Pablo Malatesta : Absolutely amazing! I'd like to see it in real live. You could even make a midi controller with a lava lamp!

John Moriarty : Everything you do is so awesome xD

ATLS : This should’ve been on that Force Awakens ep
