About this project

YuScale GO – The World’s First Scale in a Phone Case 

Join the 3D revolution in food-weighing with YuScale GO – Stop guessing, start tracking!

YuScale enables you to track your eating habits and gain control over calories with just an easily applicable phone case. We connected the case with the app and created YuScale. 

We took the most advanced technology and turned it into a food tracking revolution! YuScale – wearable for your smartphone.

 Meet the YuScale System: Mobile Scale and Photo/Nutrition App

Here is a design mockup with a regular phone case and our scaling module piggybacked. 

 YuScale is made to determine nutritions in a restaurant, canteen and on holidays.

 

 The capacity is from 1gram to 4kilo.

  And if you don’t weigh food …

 … it’s just a phone case.

No more guessing what you’re eating, for easy weight loss. 

YuScale – the new food-weighing product with a gorgeous app for measuring your food intake. No more guessing carbs and nutrients! It gives you a new and efficient way to take control over your eating habits. After all, knowledge is power.

Food. Whether you’re a passionate foodie, who cannot resist giving a shot for another delicious meal, forgetting the struggle with gaining control over weight or having issues with diabetes, just by taking your mobile anywhere with you, YuScale easily measures your exact food intake. Eating out has never felt more guilt-free, when you know when to stop!

YuScale is an easy-to-use and always portable mobile skin that enables you to weigh your food. With a complimenting app it uses photo-analysis to calculate the final amount of food intake personally for your occasion.

YuScale collaborates with:

How it works

Before the meal, weigh the plate and take a picture of the dish with the YuScale App. 

Then choose marked areas one by one to assign the entry out of the existing database. YuScales displays the nutritional values that can be associated with the current dish. 

After finishing the meal, weigh the leftovers. YuScale will calculate the exact consumption. 

The app is also helpful for diabetics and everyone who benefits from an easy way to document nutrition more precisely. The results will appear with a timestamp in your personal food diary. It’s also possible to add notes on body weight, BMI, personal mood. 

In the future, YuScale GO detects different components automatically as our algorithm identifies the content of the image. 

Keep a health log all in one place. Gather all your food intake related info in health diary in YuScale app. Then just after logging a meal you get an overview of the exact consumption. 

We are working on further development steps to make the process easier and to increase the precision. 

YuScale features 

  • We’ll create a case-scale for each phone model 
  • Easy to weigh your food from anywhere 
  • Web access enables to store data in Cloud 
  • Compact mobile skin fits your phone 
  • Calculate consumption with food detector 
  • We’ll create different designs of the case (to be voted)

One solution that fits to every smartphone model. You choose the kind of device and you’ll get an individual case. 

How do we manage this? We will use 3D-printing (Laser Sintering). We have been using this technology successfully before. The design of our weighing unit will be very similar to what we have done before. 

We have a working prototype of our phone case scale and the team has an experience from building another scale design. Our app is now available in Germany, and we will launch it globally before we ship the cases.

Manufacturing

We plan to produce YuScale GO in Germany with one of our partner companies. Some electronic parts come from China and the 3D printed cases from Germany as well. Past experience has shown, that short distance to the manufacturer is helpful in terms of controlling and fixing of problems. 

Shipping 

YuScale GO delivers worldwide. All rewards excluding shipping costs. Duty charges may apply. 

Our Roadmap

Warranty 

All rewards include a one year warranty that covers the repair of the mobile skin. YuScale is designed for health-aware people and foodies.

Team

 

 The YuScale UG was founded in December 2016 but the team of founders (based in Bielefeld/Hamburg, Germany) has worked together since 2000.

Risks and challenges

As with any Development and production, there is the possibility of problems and delays in the production process and with suppliers. Moreover there might be errors in the software development.

We feel confident, to be able to overcome all difficulties based on our many years of experience in software development.

In order to assure outstanding manufacturing quality, we rely on industrial manufacturing partners and their ability to resolve any occurring problem to our complete satisfaction. We choose local partners for the first production run to maintain complete control in the manufacturing process and order only standard parts from out international suppliers.
