A device for the health-conscious!
Sharp brings to market the Papyrus PW-9920, a portable health and diet monitoring device.
Users of the PW-9920 are presented with tons of information regarding their physical wellness as well as instructions on how to improve it. With recommendations as to the types of food that one should eat, the new device works like a personal health instructor.

The PW-9920’s menus can be rearranged according to the user’s desire, and the user can also alter or sort the contents of the unit. Furthermore, it features a fast search and listing utility. The device’s software also includes an English/Japanese dictionary.
The Papyrus PW-9920 will first be released in Japan by the end of January. The device will then be deployed around the world within a few months time. Its price is set at JPY 42,000 (approximately $360 USD).
