BenQ Tells You How Fat You Are

This is by far the strangest convergence device I’ve ever seen/read about. I’d consider myself a health freak, but BenQ seems to be some sort of psychopathic healthy monster. Do consumers really want to measure their body fat while waiting for the bus or after they’ve eaten a Big Mac (I know this won’t actually be applicable)? BenQ has done their homework on how to measure body fat so this could actually work and be useful. You simply touch the two separate electrodes protruding from the side of the phone and a chip measures the electrical signal between them which in turn determines body impedance from the fat in your body and then calculates body fat ratio. Good on ya, BenQ – I think.
