Electronic scale .. just because..

Bought a bunch of stuff on Ebay, here among: HX711 strain gauge A/D converters, 40Kg. load cells, 2,8" TFT touch display Arduino shields.

These items were all bought for different projects but screamed to be put together into a Arduino powered scale:

All components were just mounted on pieces of CNC cut plywood:
With this set-up I will be experimenting with different weight related issues such as:
counting items, mediated chemical recepies, food monitoring, paint usage ...

More to come on this.

Arduino source (as is!) for a couple of experiments
