WaterScale / kitchen scale


Waterscale uses just water to weigh.No digital or mechanical components.Its innovation is using Archimedes' principle,which is one of the fundemantal principles of physics,to perform weighing. The objects, which are placed on the scale plate, sink in the water in proportion with its mass and overflowing water moves upwards through channel under the water reservoir. Weight of the object is measured with water and the plastic bead in the channel.It is anticipated to scale up to 1000grams.It has less components in comparison to the scales in the market. And the fact that it does not need electricity or battery, makes it a simpler product.
