Bathroom scale + Arduino

Hi everyone,

I would like to connect a bathroom scale to my arduino, I have been reading some hacks around the net

http://code.google.com/p/casainho-projects/wiki/SdCardBathroomScale#The_original_cheap_scale_I_bought_on_market http://forum.sparkfun.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=10003&start=0 http://code.google.com/p/casainho-projects/wiki/SdCardBathroomScale#Introduction http://hackedgadgets.com/2009/10/08/weight-logging-bathroom-scale/

Does anyone know of a simpler version to do this, instead of having to read the LCD and convert it? I find this quite difficult for my knowledge right now and maybe there is a simpler way. If not, ill have to look more deeply into the LCD solution

thanks

If you have access to the load cell in the scale... yes, with some electronics to amplify the signal.
