Could we see a picture of one of these digitally synthesized analog displays? For this topic, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Regarding analog gauges, many believe people glean information from them more quickly than a flashing number that the brain must interpret using slower acting language center (as opposed to motion and position which are faster acting brain functions). If you are referring to the iTunes-like cover-flow capability, then it is definitely the "cool factor" that is the draw :)

While it may be more efficient for the machine, Humans were designed for an analog world. Humans read analog gauges far faster than they can read a digital readout. This is important when travelling at 88 feet per second down a backroad. It's the reason race cars used to turn their gauges so normal operation pointed straight up.

This microcontroller has the capability to display information in so many ways - why use it to simulate such an inefficient display technology?
