It’s not finished yet, but it’s coming along pretty nicely with an LCD display and the code for the counting, the menues and the settings pretty much done.

I just found out there’s a new Propeller Chip that’s far more powerful and can do multi-processing, so I expect the robot builders will go crazy with this one.
