Last week I was invited to a medical tech. expo at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in sf to talk with VP of medical Research, Mark Fischer-Colbrie - about medical advancements for people with diabetes. I'm a type 1 diabetic so this was something I found pretty amazing.

The tea cup is a capacitive sensor controlling a sound signal. It is essentially a Theremin. Very easily doable.

Hey North I was thinking of using this capacitive sensor tech. and making something musical like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phqymc8anO0. With that said is there any way of changing the tone of a capacitive sensor theremin? Like instead of having just a high pitched scifi sound can I tuned them to low notes, high notes, etc.

I think you may find great inspiration in MAX/MSP for this. The capacitive sensing can control software so you could substitute any sound you'd like.
