Kern Precision Scales: Cup and pen

To advertise Kern's exceptional Precision Scales, we created some corporate merchandise: a pen that tells you its own descending weight, as you use it. And a cup that tells you - to 7 decimal places - how much it weighs when exactly filled with different drinks weigh - coffee, tea, water and even German Weissbier (office parties only). All measurements conducted by Kern scientists in laboratory conditions.

I'm most fond of the pen, cause that's sort of interactive in a way. Coffee cup fits the stationary very well. Smart. Job well done.

Great continuation of the original idea which was very impressive, see ivan's link. The pen is fun, but I'm curious why only one decimal place. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.
