How does it work?

The Theremixer is a futuristic sound device that blends the idea of a theremin with modern technology. It's powered by a Teensy microcontroller and uses an Audiokit for sound processing and output. The two distance sensors, using infrared technology, measure the distance to your hand, allowing you to control frequency and volume effortlessly. It has an on/off toggle and rhythm button with a potentiometer for adjusting rhythm speed, making it versatile and easy to use. With precision and responsive technology, the Theremixer blends sound and engineering to create a unique musical experience.
