Baby Weight

Babies need to be weighed regularly to check their development, but most infant scales are cumbersome, ugly, and cold to the touch. Taiwan’s Duck Image has envisioned an alternative that is equal parts 2001 and Homer Simpson. The Bubble Infant Scale prototype, which also received a Red Dot Award this year, is made of transparent plastic bubbles (resembling donuts) that inflate at the touch of a button. The bubbles, which are comfortable against bare skin, measure the baby’s weight through the change in air ­pressure—and, when deflated, the scale folds into a convenient palm-size package.
