Ambient Dashboard – now THIS is cool

As mentioned on Boingboing, Ambient Devices makes a nifty retro-esque system for displaying realtime data in a traditional ‘analog needle’ mode.
The ‘Dashboard‘ consists of 3 analog meters with replacable backdrops. It receives it’s data via FM subcarrier, configured via a web browser. You can go to their site and tell your unit what you’d like to display. Current stock market values? Temperature outside? Amount of traffic to your website today? All of these can be represented in realtime.
The Wireless Weblog has a full review of the unit, including information on the subscription service and everything. Just plain neato.
