As I was googling for a new art blog to follow. I came across this blog entry on The Design Blog about a bus stop in the Netherlands that will remind you of your extra weight. Here is the full blog entry from The Design Blog written by Naveen.
You better not sit on this if you are hiding your extra flab. Netherlands-based health club operator Fitness First has planned to set up weight meters at some of the bus shelters in the city of Amsterdam. While the person sits on the nearby bench, the machine tells the actual weight. The back of the bench has a chart that shows if the person is above the ideal weight. The idea of bus shelters with weight meters is not new to us, but the installation concept by Fitness First looks quite trendy. These weight meters would be a great way for the lasses to flatter their figure.
Could you imagine broadcasting your weight for the whole world to see. I guess it would be a reality check. But to me it is a little extreme.
