How to build a kitchen timer

Check out these circuit diagrams. What? It's a kitchen timer. What did you think it was?

The guy from frisnit.com has lots of great projects.

It's a kitchen timer. Use it to time spaghetti, or maybe an egg. It uses two PICs, one acts as a keyboard encoder, the other drives the display and supports the timer functions. You key in the desired time and press '#'. It's accurate to 1/100th of a second, which can make all the difference I'm sure you'll agree

Also, the duct tape is critical to it's operation! Let me know when you attempt to bring one of these on board an airplane!
