Get a Vague Idea of How Fat You Are

“Vage”, a concept scale from German designer Patrick Decker, seeks to assuage our overly critical perceptions of weight.  Rather than display actual mass in pounds or kilograms, it indicates either green or red relative to a user’s ideal weight.  Considering a weight scale exists to give accurate measurement of a person’s mass, you’d think something as vague as this would be useless.  Maybe the next iteration could dispense a cookie and replace the color red with “you’re just big boned.”
