Clever Spoon Helps Parkinson’s Patients Eat Without Spilling
If you’ve ever seen someone with Parkinson’s (Muhammad Ali, Michael J. Fox..) you can probably imagine how frustrating it may be to do trivial daily tasks when you shake uncontrollably. The inventors of this spoon took a technology that we take for granted every single day and turned it into something that matters.
They managed to put image stabilization sensors from your smartphone into the handle of this spoon so it wouldn’t shake even if your hand does. How cool is that? And seeing it being used looks so surreal. Just imagine, the same hardware that makes your selfies less blurry gives these people dignity to eat without spilling.
