PS-001 / Paper scale


Discipline: Professional Concept

Discipline: Professional Concept

This ultra thin bendable scale combines an electronic pressure sensing sheet and electronic display paper. When stepped on with both feet, the voltage in the electronic sheet changes and transforms it into body weight and displayed by the e-paper. The paper scale is as soft as a bathroom mat, can be rolled up and is water resistant. You can simply put it outside the bathroom as stepping mat and watch your weight at any time. The bendable, array-arranged pressure sensor is wrapped in the bendable soft material, forming a flexible electronic mat that can detect the distribution of pressure.
