Among Google's latest attempts at innovation is a spoon that allows people with essential tremors and Parkinson's disease to eat without spilling. The project was begun by a small startup that was acquired by Google earlier this year. Equipped with sensors that detect shaking, the spoon uses algorithms to keep it steady, reducing shaking by an average of 76 percent, according to the results of clinical trials.

US Makes Calorie Counts Mandatory on Menus
Calling obesity a "national epidemic," the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued new rules this week that will require chain restaurants and vending machine operators to post calorie counts on their menus. The mandate is intended to extend the 1990 Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, which established requirements for nutritional labeling on most packaged food items. Under the new rules, some menu items will be exempt, including seasonal offerings, daily specials, and condiments. Restaurants will be given one year to satisfy the new requirements, and vending machine operators will be given two years.
