Digit-Obscuring Scales

The Conceptual 'Privacy' Weighing Scale Keeps Readings Personal

— February 10, 2020 — Tech
The conceptual 'Privacy' weighing scale has been designed by Hoyoung Joo as a piece of equipment for public spaces to provide users with a way to keep an eye on their fitness without having to share the info with everyone around them. The scale features a digital interface that's simple to read from directly above, but can't be viewed by anyone else around thanks to an elevated cone that surrounds the screen. This will enable users to check their weight in locker rooms or other public spaces without having to feel nervous about doing so.

The conceptual 'Privacy' weighing scale features a discreet design that further enhances the user experience and encourages continuous use to help those on a bid to lead a healthier lifestyle do so.

2. Personalized Fitness Tracking - Disruptive innovation opportunity for businesses to develop fitness tracking devices that provide personalized data and insights to individuals without compromising their privacy in public settings.
3. Interactive Public Health Monitoring - Potential for organizations to create interactive public health monitoring systems that collect anonymous data from individuals using privacy-focused technologies for a more comprehensive understanding of public health trends.
Industry Implications
1. Health and Wellness - Opportunity for businesses in the health and wellness industry to incorporate privacy-centric features in their product offerings, such as privacy-enhancing weighing scales, to cater to individuals' needs for discreet monitoring.
