The Diet Scale was designed by Ji Lee a few years ago while he was a student, and the idea is pretty simple. Instead of showing you your weight, it makes a suggestion on what you should eat depending on what the results are. Now I assume the scale has to be calibrated to what you consider to be your ideal weight for it to make a useful suggestion that will help you reach that target, though I can’t imagine seeing ‘one piece of lettuce’ every morning would be that encouraging for someone trying to shed a few pounds.
Ji Lee now works as a Creative Director at Google Creative Lab, but since interest in the Diet Scale has been building again in the past few months, he’s started looking for a manufacturer who’s willing to turn it into a sellable product.
