Weighing Plums on the iPhone 6s [Video]

Check out this video from Simon Gladman demonstrating how 3D Touch can be used to compare the weight of two plums.

Here at FlexMonkey Towers, the ever beautiful Mrs FlexMonkey and I love to spend our Sunday mornings luxuriating in bed drinking Mimosas, listening to The Archers omnibus and eating some lovely plums. Being a generous sort of chap, whenever I pull a pair of plums from the freshly delivered Fortnum & Mason's hamper, I always try to ensure she has the larger of the two. However, this isn't always easy, especially after the third of fourth breakfast cocktail.

3D Touch to the rescue! My latest app, the Plum-O-Meter, has been specifically designed to solve this problem. Simply place two delicious plums on the iPhone's screen and the heavier of the two is highlighted in yellow so you can hand it to your beloved without fear of being thought of as a greedy-guts.

Take a look at the video below. To learn more about 3D Touch, watch this video.

This is a ridiculous post with an even more absurd title. You cannot weigh anything on the 3D Touch screens. They are driven almost 100% by software and measure things like changes in the surface area and amount of time it takes for the surface area being touched to increase. Not pressure. It works on simulating pressure sensitivity not on actual pressure sensitivity. If you notice, in the video, he weighs the same plum several times and comes up with significantly different numbers each time. That's because depending on what side/spot the plum is resting it touches a different amount of surface area and therefore a higher or lower number. For example, If you took the largest plum and laid it on its broadest side it may deliver a number like 100 say. You could take that exact same plum and rest it on its bottom and the number would be something like 60. Dramatically different numbers generated by dramatically different amounts of activated surface area.

Its not accurate. If you place another plum next to the other one the weight of the plum changes.
