The iPod Nano can sing, play and now even dance. Well, not technically. The iPod itself does not dance but can be made to do so with a bit of technical wizardry.
A hacker by the name of PachimonDotCom has turned the iPod, iPhone and even the iPad into dancing robots. Though the Nano is not iOS-based and doesn't allow the installation of third party applications, the animation of the eyes in the video were done through animated GIFs, reported Mashable.
Moving the robot was more tricky but PachimonDotCom explains that he used "the sound from headphone jack as PWM signal that controls the servo motors!" Well, it sure is a treat watching the little red Nano shake a leg, or rather head in this case!
