Robot breaks the record for Piano Tiles on the iPad.

Technical details:
- Overhead iPhone 6+ processes video of the iPad screen at 120 fps.
- iPhone tracks tile speed and sends timing info via MIDI over USB through the camera connection kit.
- Teensy 3.2 receives tile data and sends step/direction to stepper drivers, which smash the tiles via conductive foam on brass bars.
