Rare Moore Talking Scale speaks out user’s weight aloud

Weighing scales have never seemed so interesting before! This Moore Talking Scale that we came across by the Moore Talking Scale Company of Boston is a blast from the past and sticks to the good old design incorporated in weighing scales from the past. With a 20th-century technological dash, using a phonograph “annunciator” mechanism, the machine speaks the user’s weight aloud, and this is probably why just a few of the kind was ever created, owing to the embarrassment of having people had their weight told out aloud.
Measuring 16 3/4″ wide x 23 1/4″ deep x 76 1/2″ high and costing $34,500, the Moore Talking Scale is sure to make just about anyone nostalgic of past technologies.
