How to make a dial/gauge in a dashborad?

Does anyone know if its possible to create a dial (siimlar to the speedometer in a car) in the dashboard?

I.e., similar to the PRTG logo where a needle moves across a fixed scale? I'd like to use these to create management facing dashboards that are easy to understand.

I can't seem to find any examples for the pre packaged icons, or custom examples despite looking.

Something in this direction is in the making right inside PRTG and should be available in Q1/13

PRTG Staff Gurus,

Please do this with the temperature icon as well.

If icons were animated, i.e. actual guages corresponding with data points that would be really great. Otherwise I find the icons sort of pointless as we create Visio diagrams for our networks. I've used www.jfree.org/jfreechart for guages in other projects.

Danke.
