Thames And Kosmos Musical UFO
Want to make music that is out of this world ? With the Musical UFO you can! This kit lets you build an electronic musical device that works like a simple theremin, an instrument you can play without actually touching it with your hands. A light sensor inside the UFO’s dome senses the changing light level as you move your hand above it, changing the sound.
Everyone knows what an alien flying saucer is, and everyone has their own idea about what one should look like — despite the fact that nobody has actually ever seen one. Still, the idea of visitors from other another planet inspires our fantasies. And who knows? Maybe one day we really will have a close encounter of the “third kind.” Until then, you can
use this kit to build your own UFO and send musical messages into outer space. The instructions will show you how to do it. So get going!
The theremin gets its name from its Russian inventor, Leon Theremin. His invention was the inspiration for other electronic instruments such as the synthesizer. For decades, theremins have been used in science fiction and horror movie soundtracks. This is why their unique sound is associated with the eerie sounds of UFOs and monsters. Today, theremins are used by many rock, electronic, and concert musicians.
