This code will work to control the motor and get accelerometer data.

In that git repo there is also enough usb traces for someone to figure
out the audio.

That's disappointing, it would be interesting to see if there is someway
to get speaker detection with the 4 microphones.

  Sorry for interrupting the Kinect ROS node discussion.
  But, about the HARK system,
  the newest official HARK release will be in the very near future,
  and the next version of HARK can realize seamless connection with ROS.
  The speaker location (with 4 microphones like you want) can also be published 
  as a ROS topic from HARK. 
  Please keep in mind that we are working for all your requests.
