In this photo taken Friday, Nov. 21, 2014, Anupam Pathak, a senior hardware engineer at Google, shows off the prototype of the Liftware Spoon he developed that helps people eat without spilling in Mountain View, Calif. Just in time for the holidays, Google is throwing it’s money, brain power and technology at the humble spoon. Not surprisingly, the company that has brought the driverless car and Internet glasses is bringing a unique improvement to the utensils. Built with hundreds of algorithms, these specially designed spoons make it much easier for people with tremors and Parkinson’s Disease to eat without spilling. The spoons sense a shaking hand and make instant adjustments to stay balanced. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
