"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."

Duct tape is awesome. The whole thing reminds me of "Back to the Future".

Throw the wrong switch and the display will count down to 0 and the bomb will go off
