'[OT] PIC Whistle?'

I heard on the radio today that the official whistle maker for the NHL,
NFL, and NBA is marketing a new whistle that will "stop the clock".
Perfect application for an 8 pin PIC.

Recently we've been seeing list requests for low pressure sensors and
low power transmitters - 'fess up whistle makers: *is* there a PIC in
these things?  Another product ripe for reverse engineering - imagine
the havoc of a few disgruntled fans stopping the clock whenever the tide
was turning against their team. ;-)

I know nothing about sports but I know that a condenser mike built into
the whistle supplies enough signal to drive a PIC pin and that those
ubiquitous wireless digital modules are getting smaller all the time...
ditto Lithium 3V 'pills'.

hope this helps, ;)
