Talking Alarm Timer

A Timer that plays a recorded message instead of beeping

A combination of a digital timer and a voice memo recorder. When the timer goes off instead of beeping it would play back a short recorded message. Such as "Potatos are done" or "Time to pick up the kids" or "Matlock's on in 5 minutes".

This would eliminate problem of forgetting what the timer was set for. You could also hit a button to replay the last message and have multiple timers each with it's own message.
