A project from the third semester
It is our intuition that we take objects in our hands to estimate their weight. We compare the object with empirical values and can guess whether it is lighter or heavier.
Growing technological possibilities gave a fellow student and me the idea to revive the intuitive process and to make the estimation more precise and measurable.
Within the framework of an interdisciplinary project with the electrical engineers of the University of Applied Sciences Magdeburg- Stendal, we began to work out the concept, tried out various weighing options (fiber optic cables, sensors, water and air pads) and were able to successfully implement a functional prototype with the help of the many experiments.
Software: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Fusion360, Keyshot, Arduino
