I know it looks like a flying saucer, but this an evolutionary approach to a bathroom scale made by a German company called Medisana and this model is their Target Scale ($299). The brilliant flashing blue lights lend to a trekkie’s wet dreams of beaming down like the transporter sequence, but once you step on, you are invited to some critical info about your innards:
– target weight
– your BMI (mody mass index)
– relative muscle and bone mass
– fat and water content
– balance measure (weight distribution)
The bluetooth compatibility allows for a distinctive iPhone app called the Vitadock that pretty much guides you through the whole ordeal. It can store info for up to 4 users and runs on 4 AA batteries. I definitely would opt for weighing myself in the dark with my trusty glowstick in hand.
