    A weight sensor is built around a device called a strain guage. Strain guages require signal conditioning to get analog values you can use with the processor. So Google "Weight Sensors" and "Strain Guages" and have a ball.

    Good Luck

    Pretty hard to suggest a device when we have no details to work with (10 kilos or 1000 kilos?). You could look at the Omega Engineering web site for load cells.
