A Google spoon that allows people with tremors to eat without spilling

Google is throwing its money, brain power and technology at the humble spoon. The Liftware spoon allows people with essential tremors and Parkinson's Disease to eat without spilling by reducing shaking by an average of 76 percent. The technology senses shaking and makes instant adjustments. Lift Labs founder Anupam Pathak and Google are not developing other stabilising devices for the 10 million people worldwide who suffer from essential tremor or Parkinson's disease. At $295(Rs.18,000 approx), the spoon isn't cheap, but Vala says it's made mealtimes enjoyable again.
