TI LaunchPad project

A week or so ago I've recieved TI LaunchPad kits for experiments. It's pretty cheap kit, just $4.30. Contains 2 MSP430 line mcus both with 2kb flash, just like my favorite tiny Atmel AVR mcus.
It's time to think what project to do with this kit.

I need a double digital thermometer and MSP430 mcus have integrated temperature sensor.

For external parts I need external temperature sensor and 2 segment leds to show current temperature.

Time to think which sensor to use and how to show 2 digits on 2 segments leds with only 8 gpio pins. And how to calibrate internal sensor. Maybe buttons to calibrate or switch between two sensors.
