Need a cool digital display? Fake it!

Inspired by a heating pad they purchased, Windell and Lenore of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories show how to make a fake seven segment display. Using a carefully constructed plastic bezel, a potentiometer, and some regular LEDs, they were able to create a faux digital dial, with a way cooler color scheme than one would find on regular seven segment displays. Nice hack!
