    if you cut it in half and hang the two ends balanced on a pole, then put up some rulers on both sides (vertically), you can measure the displacement and with some kind of formula calculate the weight

    i was going to tell him that it will show the weight of a heavy item when dropped directly on the screen from exactly 4 feet up (assuming you have calculator open that is), but i was afraid he would actually do it
