Description using a scale to control the chrome dino game by jumping
Author(s)  Adrian, Paul


Paul's grandparents had a digital scale lying around that thy didn't need anymore. We decided to build something cool with it, but weren't sure what. After some thinking we decided to use it to control the chrome dino game that pops up, when there is no internet connection. The project turned out working and was successfully showcased at Streetlife and Groden.



  • the scale
  • HX711 ADC board
  • WEMOS D1 mini (could be replaced by an arduino)
  • a computer
  • a button (for taring the scale)


The wemos connects to a computer via USB. The load cells are connected to the HX711 board. The wire colors of the load cells are +: White c: Red -: Black Dinojump Wiring.png
