The FATBERG is a slowly growing, man-made, floating island of fat. For this project by Mike Thompson and Arne Hendriks, I’ve built a device that helps visitors determine how much fat they should contribute to the FATBERG. By stepping on the digital scale and entering your height a suggested pledge, based on your ideal BMI value, is calculated.
The FATBERG Pledge Calculator was first used in the FATBERG exhibition at the Boijmans Museum, but will be traveling with the FATBERG to other locations.
The setup uses a digital scale, Raspberry Pi, USB numpad and 3.5″ monitor.
