There are several unique features that set the Blip Weight scale apart.
Many scales detect a user based on their weight. The scale gets confused when two people in the household are of similar weight. Some scales transmit even when our cat steps on it. Some scales select users using touch buttons which one has to press by bending down! To make life simple and ensure data goes to the right user account, we designed kick buttons!
Setup reminders on the web and the scale will remind you to take readings with illuminated buttons and audible beeps! This is the first scale we know of which does this.
10 users- 2 primary and 8 guest
Based on research, most scales are used by 1-2 people per household. So we designed in 2 primary kick buttons for the regular users. However, to accommodate other users there is a guest button. The guest button allows up to 8 users to be tracked. Why 8? Because we could - and engineers like to work with 2's. There you have it- 10 users can now track their weight on the scale!
Blip Weight Scale has unique load cell design. This design will give you the most accurate readings possible, regardless of where the scale is set up.
A vast majority of scales on the market use a type of load cell design that only works on hard surfaces like tile, hardwood or concrete. If you try and use a typical scale on a carpet or rug it will provide very inaccurate readings (sometimes up to +/-10 lbs). We worked hard to make our weight scales work on carpets too! Now you can put it anywhere you choose without worrying about carpet feet etc. This design will give you the most accurate readings possible, regardless of where the scale is set up.
We also selected the best load cells money could buy. They are heavy duty, meaning their load limit is over 400 lbs, where as most scales usually max out around 330 lbs. Free Portal and tracking tools

The scale itself is only one part of the equation. Once a user and scale is registered, the data can be tracked from any computer, tablet or smartphone!
You can forward data to your doctor, coaching program or personal health record (PHR). All this and more with a simple user interface anyone can use!

We really wanted to build something that we could give to our parents and track them over the web. Being able to nag them (and knowing they are doing well) just gave us a warm feeling!
Of course, we wanted to use it ourselves to track and trend our own weight on smartphones.
We started working on the Blip Scale about a year ago. The early stages of the project consisted of lots of sketching and research into usability.
Once the basic structure had been hashed out, we moved into CAD models to get a better idea of how this scale would look and be constructed.
Around the same time we got in touch with a manufacturer, who was able to provide feedback regarding manufacturability. After a few iterations, we were able to get working prototypes from the factory.
At this point we have everything ready to go and are looking for funding to make this scale a reality. We just need a little help getting across the finish line!

How will the funds be used?
We have built our prototypes and figured out the supply chain. We now need you help to help fund the first production run.
We know what we are doing- having built multiple wireless products before. Having served the telehealth industry for many years, we have put all our learning into this product.
You are getting in early, and getting a wonderful product. We are sure you will be happy with the results and you will part of a wonderful journey with us.
