Project Idea

Now that the weather is nice and the motorcycle is out, I’ve been noticing a few things that I would like on my bike.  For starters, I want a clock, but upon looking ofr a small LED clock to mount, I was not able to find anything that suited my needs.  This got me thinking that I should build a clock, as it would be a nice project now that I’ve been using PIC microcontrollers at work all the time.  Extending this, I could create a multifunction device to incorporate many more features than just a clock, which would make little use of the microcontroller.    So I’m debating about making a device with a clock, a tachometer (my motorcycle does not have one), a digital compass, and a thermometer.  I have a few ideas on how to implement the tach, but I will need to take a look at the wiring on the bike before I start any design of that part of the circuit.  Some research is in order.
