UD Secret Scale / scale

UD Secret Scale
UD Secret Scale

UD Secret Scale is a humanization design for the blind, vision impairment and women who try to weigh without others knowing. The mechanism of embedded bars under the scale shows the result by springing on your soles. Users can stand on the protuberance to conform the foot to the shape. Based on our reading habit, users will feel the bars spring from left sole to right. The principle of calculation is on the basis of number 1 and 5. Odd number will spring heavier than even number. If a user gets bars springing from central 5 to 7 on left sole first, and then gets bars from bottom 1 to 3 on right, which means the user’s weight is 73 kilograms.
