Meh, you don't really need floating point, but certainly a 32-bit processor would be nice. I play with a Freescale Coldfire every day... no floating point and I do things like calibrating scales and accelerometers.

You'll see major improvements by doubling to 16MHz... 8-bit, 8MHz cpus have been around longer than I've been alive.
