LCD Gauges display?

I was thinking of changing my gauges and got thinking. Does anyone make a LCD type display that can display lots of gauges readings at once in one convenient screen rather than having loads of gauges in the car? If so are they as accurate as something like defi's?

There are tonnes of companies that do them, very common in kit cars, if you pick up a kit car magazine or do a quick google for digital dash you will be over whelmed with them

Thanks for the reply guys, is there reason why there put in kit cars rather than evo's, are they less accurate than a good set of gauges?
Do none of the well known gauge companys do them?

Just that kit cars are usually built from old cars for thier monoque chassis (early 80's) and the guages from the donor are crap. As far as I can tell, if setup correctly the digital guages are perfectly accurate, definalty better then my 1981 cortina guages :)
