Have you heard of Withings? We are a French company that produces connected objects. Our first realization is a connected scale, enhanced with an online dashboard where our customer can retrieve their weight, fat mass, lean mass and BMI drawn in curves. This interface can be consult from a computer and from a Smartphone (Iphone, Android and Ipad). We will offer a scale to the winner! (Value: 159USD). We have a great press coverage (New York Times, Wired, …) and some very good feedback (for instance on Amazon)
We developed a Facebook app where you can bet on your friends’ next weight. It’s called Guess My Weight. The principle is simple. When someone posses a scale, his friends can bet on his weight (will it go up or done? Will he be thinner or fatter?). Then, when the guy steps on his Withings scale, it automatically transmits his weight to the app. If you guessed right, you win. If you guessed wrong, you lose your stake. To help you betting, you can consult his Graph Wall with his weight evolution.
The goal is to offer a funny and quirky way to deal with a sensitive subject. You can check it out at http://apps.facebook.com/wiguessmyweight/
