Washington: Internet search giant Google has added a 'smart' spoon to its list of hi-tech products.
The Liftware spoons, which is Google's latest venture, prevents food from spilling and could be very beneficial for people with essential tremors and Parkinson's disease.
Developed by health tech company Lift Labs, the Liftware spoons which Google acquired in September for an undisclosed sum, reduced shaking of the spoon bowl by an average of 76 percent in clinical trials.
The technology senses how a hand is shaking and makes instant adjustments to keep it balanced.
UC San Francisco Medical Center neurologist Dr Jill Ostrem, who specializes in movement disorders like Parkinson's disease and essential tremors helped build the device and said that the device, which has a fork attachment, has been a remarkable asset for some of her patients.
The product is aimed at people with essential tremors and Parkinson's disease that affect more than 10 million people worldwide, including Google co-founder Sergey Brin's mother.
