Weight Tracking with a Humorous, Text Messaging Scale #Pi3 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

This tutorial looks great! From InitialState on GitHub via raspberry pi pod:

Are you tired of staring at that stupid, soulless, bearer of bad news bathroom scale every morning? The one that you often say “I hate you” to as if it might hear you and give a damn. Why hasn’t anyone made a scale that is actually fun to use? It is time to create a scale that is not only smart but has a bit more personality to brighten your day. We are going to build our very own hackable, weight tracking, text messaging bathroom scale that comes with a built-in sense of humor.

This is a fun, easy project that combines a Wii balance board, a Raspberry Pi, and an online data analytics platform (https://www.initialstate.com) to create a web-connected scale controlled by a Python script you can hack.

Project level: Beginner

Approximate time to complete: 20 minutes

Fun factor: Immeasurable … seriously, this is really fun
