@Nnanci: ...if i manage to attend i will definitely rock a hawaiian outfit. :-)

That would be way cool -- we're going to have a wonderful crowd out there

@Sylvie...you don't have to be crazy to come to EEtimes, but it sure helps :-)

Enjoy the holidays and hopefully we might meet at EELive in 2014

@Garcia: I'm afraid that I would need a lot of free space around me


It sounds like we could be identical twins :-)

@Duane: I took a line dancing class once.

In that case you can be the one at the front scampering around throwing the big batton thingy into the air and leading the parade.

@Max: "I'm not thinking of a major production here -- just a 30-second sequence of fun :-)"

I think this is going to be really funny... have you noticed that all that Japanese boys look exactly the same? -- same height, weight...

I don't know the other candidates for the show, but I'm "just" 1'90 meters tall and over 100Kg -- >6ft, >220lb -- so I'm afraid that I would need a lot of free space around me LOL

You should create a 3D version. Then you can use the software from your Arduino LED cube. Shouldn't any software person be able to read the code and instinctively know where to go. Right?

As for me, I took a line dancing class once. The carnage was legendary. I turned the wrong way so many times and ran people over so many times that the instructor had to call in the National Guard to get me out and bandage up all of the kicked ankles. I think I'm banned for life from ever again attempting anything that requires actual physical coordination.

@betajet: I don't know how much one can do with 30 minutes of drill.

They make it look pretty easy in the video (LOL). If we actually get something written down, folks could practice at home (to the consternation of their loved ones) ahead of time.

I'm not thinking of a major production here -- just a 30-second sequence of fun :-)

@betajet: I'd like to see some basic sequential logic circuits acted out.

That's a pretty cool idea -- OK, you are in charge of the choreography.
