Yes. I can clean up the code a little bit and shoot a short video a the
OLPC office.

It's an old trick -- my friend Seth Schoen did a very simple program
that beeped out the wireless signal strength 3-4 years ago and we wrote
one version of the theramin together then and also hacked up a little
Geiger counter. The *really* cool thing about the XO, and the thing that
motivated me to resurrect the idea in the first place, is the two
antenna which allow for a proper theramin.
