Studio17 were asked to build on the success of their previous fat analysing scales, with a new design that changes its hue depending on the users weight difference from their previous saved weight.

A glass top surface provides the strength needed to maintain a slim product, feeling reassuringly weighty. The sense of quality is reinforced by the use of a conductive coating on the glass, replacing the surface mounted steel plates of previous models. This technology allows a minute electrical current to pass through the body, determining fat content based in the time it takes to pass through muscle and fat tissue.

This unbroken glass surface, touch sensitive controls and a move from backlit LCD to LED display raises the perceived quality of the product without significantly increased production costs.

As the electrodes are largely invisible, along with the display when switch off, alot of the visual 'noise' is removed from the design. This gives the product an unassuming, discrete appearance important to the Japanese market, yet adds to its transformative nature when illuminated.

The metallic composition of the conductive coating gives the product a reflective quality, subtly defining these areas. The plastic underside tapers towards the edges, giving the feel of a thinner product in the hand.

Sold throughout Japan.
