What if you got a call? What a mess.
But doesn't Zagg Invisible Shield solve that problem?

No way will any cop know that much and if they do they prolly dont care lol. anyways if u get caught with 1/8 and ur phone its just posession instead of a felony

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

I bet it takes at least 3-4g before it registers anything, also, the program will have a hard time judging between WEIGHT and surface area, because all our screens really detect is surface area.

You would need a tray that on the phone, with a "nub" that touched the screen. Something that is consitant. Then you can go based on the increase in surface area from there, and get a weight.

Sounds like too much work to me.

I'm not into the stuff, but my friends used to have tiny little scales that were smaller than a mini-cell phone. Seems easy enough to bring with you to ensure the product.

It seems to me that there is some reason why this can't be done that was talked about like a year ago. Anyone remember?

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

lol it's pretty obvious this can't be done, but i think this discussion is hilarious. i can see someone weighing out his goods when a call comes in and starts vibrating the goods all over the place...
