Project Weight Watcher
An Interactive Sales Presenter

During a brainstorm session with our dear friend Lutz from productionmatters we were thinking about interactivity at the point of sale and options for displaying product relevant informations. Since we didn’t want to use RFID because of latency and didn’t want to use image processing options because of cost and fail-proof issues we came up with an easy, cost-efficient and high performance alternative. Say hi to the “scale on steroids”.

The Hood

A display

A square Samsung from a video wall.

A load cell sensor.

This generates the weight value of the item placed on top of the display.

A computer

This nifty little thing is called latte panda.

Other stuff

Wires, fans, buttons and some software.
