My imagination is limited to illicit items lol i mean what other possible item would you weigh in grams? lol prescription drugs and gold would be weighed on much more sophisticated measurement tools that are professionally calibrated. that leaves illicit drugs as the only thing left to really weigh lol

Re: [IDEA] weight scale using pressure sensor on touchscreen

I honestly woudlnt' have much to weigh with it at all. Perhaps if i was ballancing something, that would be about it.

Re: [IDEA] weight scale using pressure sensor on touchscreen

This program would be awesome, just for the cooL factor.

I read about an iPhone scale a couple of days back. It takes advantage of the accelerometer to determine the weights, so we could even go that route. This way would have a lot less cooL factor, though.

Re: [IDEA] weight scale using pressure sensor on touchscreen

i dont think this would be accurate with very light weights, like say 10 grams

Yes it is you can adjust how sensitive the screen is. For a program like this they would just set the screen to be VERY sensitive while it's in that program.

but the surface area is too big. i would think you would need some sort of tray to get this to be reliable.

Either way, i would rather have a $20 digital scale that i can spill what ever i want on and not feel bad...
