Some Kiwi hacks the microwave with raspberry PI

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ That is AMAZING!!! Stephen, all the times I teased about your Linux toaster... I take it all back. If that's the type of thing you can do with hacking appliances... SIGN ME UP! To be fair, it wasn't just a RPi - he had to get a barcode scanner, a speaker, some LEDs, and other stuff, too. But still - the end result is outstanding. Scan a barcode to set the timer / power level. WHY HAS NO ONE DONE THIS? I just wanted a microwave with a SILENT mode, and maybe a custom "One Touch cooking" button. This thing... this is incredible. I really hope he kickstarters this thing or something. A danged iOS app. Crazy. *- Chad W. Smith*
