As the hot dog cooks, the resistance of the hot dog increases and the LEDs get dimmer since less current can flow through them. If you look *very* closely (or take a time lapse movie) you can see the LEDs move further apart as the hot dog swells during cooking.

    awesome just ..... how come the electricity ''knows'' the right polarity and the way it should flow via the leds???

    When the voltage is the correct direction, it flows through the LED. When it's the wrong direction it doesn't, so the LEDs actually turn on and off 60 times a second... but it's hard to see that.
