Talking Clock Answered
I'm new to the forum of inscrutables, but I've been bored at work recently and been thinking of things to brighten the place up. I've come up with an idea, but have very limited technical skills, if somebody could just point me in the right direction so that I could start this project I would be really appreciative and would post up pictures and videos of the final product.
Idea: Essentially, I work at a pool where the lifeguards rotate every 15 mins, which they forget to do OFTEN! Me and a few others have decided to make a clock to replace our current one that would, every 15 mins make a noise, or say "rotate" to remind them to rotate on time. It would also be fun if we could have several different voices saying "rotate" of different employees. I'm pretty sure this can be done because I've seen clocks that make bird chirping noises, But I can't figure out how they work.
Any help would be awesome, I really want to learn new things, which I think is everybody's reason for being on instructables anyway.
