    “With $1 million seed round, Lift Labs launches spoon for people with Parkinson’s”

    Absolutely phenomenal. It’s stuff like this that keeps society moving forward.

    In clinical studies, the spoon reduced tremor by about 70 percent, the company said. While it doesn’t entirely cancel out a tremor, these testimonial videos show that it makes quite a difference.

    With enough time, it will cancel out everything much like chickens heads and the new stabilizing cameras.
