Walkie-talkie Theremin: if only it was all this easy


I got really excited when I read the headline over at Music Radar — after all, creating cool-sounding stuff from cheap, everyday gadgets is great.

However, it doesn’t sound much more revolutionary than a guitarist standing a bit too close to their amplifier.

Gordon Charlton uses a pair of Binatone Latitude 150 walkie-talkies, of which there’s really nothing special, and just moves them closer together and further apart, altering the pitch of the feedback.

Actually, having watched the video, it is quite neat. What weird instruments have you made from everyday tech?
