Weiche Wu, a designer currently studying Industrial Design at CentralSt Martins College of Art and Design in London, has come up with TheWeight Recorder, a scale that uses a pencil and a circular disc tokeep an analogue record of your weight changes over the years in a simple,easy to visualize format.
The scale makes a mark without any statistical number everytime when you using it. After a while, then you can read the data that thescale has made, then you can see how it changes in a graphic way. At thesame time, it could record some specific events. For example, when peoplego travel with flight, a scale might be used for weighing luggages athome. Therefore, the data on the scale might suddenly climb in an unusualway. That specific data could easily point out some particular things havehappened.
