Last weekend I saw the Withings Scale featured in a TEDx Living By Numbers Event about personal sensors. Wired's Chris Anderson is apparently getting on the Withings scale every day. He also carries around all kinds of sensors to track his activity. The Wi-Fi Body scale has been around for a while. We tested it back in 2009. Today Withings announced that you can now see your weight on your Panasonic TV. The Withings application is now available for download on Panasonic’s VIERAConnect Market.
You can now access your Withings health dashboard right on your Panasonic VIERA Connect-enabled VIERA HDTVscreen with the touch of a button, turning your living room into a virtual gym. The WiFi Body Scale is an automatic weight tracking device for up to 8 people. It wirelessly records a user’s body weight, lean & fat mass, and calculated body mass index (BMI) onto his/her own secure webpage and/or free Withings iPhone application, WiScale.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
