    Me and my mates where talking and thought that a pair of scales would be so cool on a iphone/ipod, so that it could weight up stuff.

    Could anyone make that or is there a app out there which does that?

    The iphone can't sence the amout of pressure excerted, so there's no way it would be able to calculate weight, just go get a digital scale,lol. And what exactly would you be weighing? Ha, pot heads.... JP

    I've got it!

    The gravitational pull can determine how much we way by using the accelorometer!

    Simply jump off a building (At least 30 Stories High) and the Forces of Gravity (c) will pull down on you/Accelorometer, thus giving you a read out on how fast you are falling.

    Then it calculates it using the speed of falling (terminal velocity), and all the air resistance, and gives you your weight.
