The theremin is an extremely expressive instrument due to it giving one the ability to continuously control a pitch and an amplitude. However, there are electronic instruments with more capability, and I think the Razer Hydra motion controller is soon to be one of the most versatile. See the threads in these forums and Sixense's forums for more information and news.

The Hydra senses absolute position and rotation, so together two controllers can control six pitches and amplitudes through a DAW (I'm trying to get it to work with Csound) through MIDI or OSC (OSC passes button, control stick etc. states as well). It's one thing to use a theremin. It's quite another to control six notes at once (especially with programmibility). Imagine the possibilities! I see this as a step forward in musical expression.

In case you're wondering, it's currently 130 USD, works with Windows through USB (but there could be a Mac solution in a couple of months), and the two controllers are wired instead of taking batteries.
