It’s time again for that age-old question:
Could this novelty scale I dreamed about ever exist, and if it did, would it sell?
In a nutshell, the novelty scale is like a combination of these two items:
Essentially, it would work like this:
- There would be a pool table with a mathematically defined set of numbered balls on the table.
- You’d step on a scale at the end of the table.
- The balls would scramble to the nearest pockets (courtesy of magnets?), leaving behind the balls that added up to your weight. Kind of like how the above thermometer works (courtesy of magnets?).
There are plenty of weird people out there with money to burn. So… any takers?
