Automatically record weight in a field
This seems kind of out there... but I was wondering if there is any way to have a digital scale hooked up to computer via USB or another connection and when a person or package stands on a scale, it records the weight in a field? Perhaps upon the action of a button?
Would this work for blood pressure and heart rate and other measurements, if the hardware that takes the reading is hooked up to the computer somehow?
Anyone heard of something like this?
We weigh scrap metal and used beverage containers here where I work. We manually enter the weights at this time, but I've researched this one. There's a Troi plug in that reads the serial port that could be set up to do this, but it's expensive. You can research it on line and see if it will serve and if the cost is justified.
