How to hack your microwave

AKSARBENT never sleeps in its quest to bring more quirkiness to its readers. Here's something we found at by Tyler Wells Lynch:
     Nathan Broadbent [AKSARBENT likes him already!], a New Zealand software engineer, used that cheap, Sony single-board computer called Raspberry Pi to develop a program that interacts with his home microwave, and which can be controlled remotely. Here are some of the features of Nathan’s brilliant home-mod microwave:
  • Internet-synced clock
  • Voice command control
  • Barcode scanner for looking up cooking instructions from online database, which Broadbent created himself
  • Mobile app phone for setting up cooking instructions for specific products
  • Tweets after the timer is up
Here's how he did it.
