The Latin weighing machine no longer measures just the seemingly all-important number of weight, but also measures BMI (Body Mass Index), BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate), muscle and bone mass, and other biometric data.
The design, by Fani Meng, is a simple electronic weighing machine like a conventional weighing machine, but has no analog or digital scale to show the numbers. Instead, the data is transferred through a Smartphone App where the readings are stored. With the increasing transferability and availability of data relating to sports performance, the Latin weighing machine will surely help those looking for a substantial and comprehensive measurement and breakdown of their internal biometrics. Some other features that the Latin weighing machine can measure include body fat, visceral fat index, body water, body age and sleep rate.
