Finally an e-ink device designed for the bathroom. The Paper Scale!

Finally an e-ink device designed for the bathroom. The Paper Scale!

http://www.yankodesign.com/index.php...9/paper-scale/

This was bound to happen but Duck Image Studio is the first (that we know of) to apply paper electronic technology to a scale. The ultra thin flexible scale combines a pressure sensing sheet that relays information to an e-paper display. It’s waterproof, easy to clean, and can be rolled up for storage.

In this particular example the technology is kept small in the form of a traditional scale but imagine a large bath mat or even floor tiles. Of course I’m not sure I’d want to know how much I weighed every time I stepped into the bathroom. This thing will only further solidify Americans are overweight and dammit I’m not ready to deal with my weight issues. Now excuse me while I eat my morning cinnamon bun.

Nifty! They should have integrated an e-book reader.

The bath tub is one place where I don't allow myself to use the EBookwise 1150; for fear of dropping it into the water... I have to resort do DT...

Now I can finally have that two dimensional bathroom I've dreamed of since the third grade! Please, everyone, tessaract over (or should I say hypo-tessaract under? hmmm...) and we'll all have a little projective 'suarae' in my sub-dimensional commode. No need to jiggle the handle; it lacks the degrees of freedom. If we like that, we can get really silly and have a line dance!

Maybe I'm missing the point, doesn't a really thin scale just make us all feel fatter?

Mike

BTW - all kidding aside, I want one (badly... I'm jones'in man) Is it really for sale? I went to Yanko design but couldn't find it in their shop.

I originally posted this item to a thread about bathroom etiquette. RCR made the following comment which I thought was very funny and did not want it to be missed.

I thought it was worthy of being on the front page. So copied it so it could be.

That's pretty slick! I take it this qualifies as the first e-ink device that's intended to be stepped on?
