Airlines are getting nastier these days when it comes to baggage weight. The Digital Luggage Scale lets you know how heavy your suitcase is up to 100 lbs. Simply clip it to your bag, lift it up, and after it beeps, set it back down and read the results. At a size 6 x 3½ x 1-inch and a weight of 8 oz., it uses 2 AA batteries (not included,) and has a price of $24.85.

For an additional $25,000 for extra hard and software, the same screens can be used for 3-D movies, such as the recent Hannah Montana flick. Hollywood knows that they make more money than 2-D, so we guess the amount will pay for itself since we don’t see any bigtime celebs offering to take pay cuts.
