Let’s face it, life as an action figure is hard. You just stand around all day, and occasionally somebody picks you up and bends your stiff joints to their whim. Their muscles have got to ache from all of that.
I do all the cooking at my house because my wife can’t cook. My son used to cry if she cooked breakfast because she once set the bacon on fire. You only get to burn bacon once in my house before you are fired.
Withings has been selling digital fitness devices and a scale for adults that can track your weight or even share it via social networks if you want it to. The idea is that the scale can help motivate you to reach your goals and share your progress with friends.
It’s never good when your bathroom scale gives you inconsistent readings. That’s probably one of the reasons why people seem to like these new high-tech scales that can track your weight history via your smartphone. There aren’t too many available on the market yet, so it’s good to see more alternatives popping up like this one from Wahoo Fitness.
Say you want to watch a TV program or a video of a recipe while you cook? While you could always bring your smartphone or tablet into the kitchen, there’s always a chance you’ll get it wet or get food stuck on or inside of it.
I’ve known for the last couple of years that my home scale is a bit off, so I wonder if an expensive digital scale will do better. The idea of a smartphone-connected scale isn’t something new, but Withings new scale looks pretty spiffy and it’s supported by plenty of apps to help you keep track of your weight.
Let’s be honest, most of us prefer the scales in the bathroom to read on the low side. Who wants accuracy, when you can feel a bit better about yourself? I’ll tell you one group who wants accuracy, scientists.
Everyone who’s trying to lose weight or to stay fit knows that a good scale is an important part of keeping on track. This isn’t the first high-tech scale that I’ve come across, but it sure looks futuristic, kind of like a transporter pad from Star Trek, probably a way to entice to actually step onto it rather than not.
This beauty combines two of our favorite passions, LEGO and Back To The Future. This is a made to scale LEGO DeLorean. It’s j
ust a 1:15 scale model of the real thing, so it isn’t large, but it is impressive.
I don’t cook a lot. And when I do, it usually ends up in disaster: either it ends up getting undercooked (because I have no patience and think it’s done when it’s really not) or overcooked (because I forgot all about it and left the stove on without switching the timer on.)
A lot of lives (some human, mostly animal) have been sacrificed in the name of science and medicine. It’s hard to completely understand how some biological organisms function or how some processes work because scientists can’t just go ahead and cut something (or someone) up to do so.
Men, here’s a quick tip: ask women any question, just don’t ask her what her weight is. (Unless, of course, you want to be bombarded with a hundred and one follow-up questions as to why you’re asking her and why you’re so mean and insensitive and if you think she’s fat and all that..)
If you ask me, the mouse is definitely something I can’t live without. Sure, the touchpad on my laptop is enough for my needs sometimes, but I need my USB mouse to be able to drag and drop things with ease.
For anyone who uses a scale regularly, it’s a given that most of them out there are pretty basic. How about injecting a bit of style and technology into these utilitarian weight-watchers? And no, I’m not talking about a scale that tweets your weight.
