I wrote a program that does just that.
A Microchip and flash memory. CD quality mono.
Not for beginner.

A few months ago, RadioShack sold a little chip that could record 20
seconds or so of digital sound. I think the cost was something like
$1.49. There are also a bunch of places that sell those little
picture frames with a button and a speaker on the front. You push
and hold in the button -- when it beaps, you can record anything for
up to 20 seconds. The speaker also doubles as the microphone.
