All are pretty neat. I don't understand the first thing though, the Theremin? I don't understand how it works or what the person is doing...lol

I thought the continuum fingerboard was the best one.

The Theremin is pretty badass. I think Incubus did a song with one of them in it.

As for the hammered dulcimer, I have a sudden urge to eat a turkey leg and partake in some witch burning. Awesome feeling.

Yeah Theremins are cool every once in a while!

(especially if some one is sci-fi nerdly like myself!)
