Theremins are a bit of an odd instrument to start off with, but [AphexHenry] made a decision to place a single the place no theremin has absent before: into a baguette.

The “baguetophone” is a theremin and piezo-percussion instrument inside a hollowed-out baguette.

Outdoors smuggling an instrument into a French café for a flash mob efficiency, this could also show useful if you are somebody who will get hungry while participating in songs. We do not advise snacking on the Arduino even if it is ROHS compliant while.
