Tremor Canceling Silverware Instills Confidence At Holiday Gatherings

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And, given that most of us will be eating big this holiday break, we thought it’d be interesting to check back in on one of the innovative technologies we discovered earlier this year – silverware with stabilizing technology called Liftware created by Lift Labs. The spoon helps people with tremors get food from plate to mouth. Sounds like an innovation that will be particularly useful this holiday season.

So where is Lift Labs now?

In September 2014, Lift Labs was acquired by Google! It is now part of Google Life Sciences, which is a part of Google X, the Internet giant’s long-term projects division which focuses on technology innovations (instead of drugs).

Congrats to Lift Labs on their success and hopefully this will help the company scale their technology and reach more people who can benefit from it. In the meantime, Happy Holidays!
