This took me ages to get working properly. I hope you enjoy my hard work!

The processor doing the work is an atmega128 running at 16Mhz. This means that the best I've been able to manage is about 20 conversions a second, which means that he is sometimes a little out of time with the music. I'm working on implementing a more efficient algorithm in the next version.

The other hard part about getting him to work is trying to algorithmically determine when and how to dance. Right now, he responds to low frequency waves to detect the tempo of the song, but I'm testing a few other ideas out.
