Based on a 1995 study by 2Pac and Dr. Dre.
But add to that the moments when sufferers try to enjoy a meal with friends or family. The frustration attendant with being unable to keep food on the fork or spoon becomes another consequence of the disorder.
Now a San Francisco startup called Lift Labs is selling a piece of assistive technology that counters hand tremors and lets users have a meal without embarrassment or annoyance. The device, called Liftware, mounts utensils on an active stabilizing platform that diminishes uncontrollable jerking movements.
This month, Lift Labs is matching donations to its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to send Liftware to people in economic hardship. The company will send the devices to the International Essential Tremor Foundation for distribution to those in need. Click through to see the campaign video.
so me, my sister and my dad decided watching it again.
and then there were the scenes when Bonnie is playing….
and my dad said
After Luke Skywalker gets his hand cut off during a duel with Darth Vader in “Star Wars,” young Skywalker is fitted with an artificial hand that allows him to both grip and feel again. Now scientists are making science fiction real with a new bionic hand that has helped a patient feel the sensation of touch in real-time through his prosthetic.
"The sensory feedback was incredible," says 36-year-old amputee Dennis Aabo Sørensen from Denmark. "I could feel things that I hadn’t been able to feel in over nine years."
During lab tests in which he was wearing a blindfold and earplugs, Sørensen detected how firmly he grasped objects. He could also tell the differences in items’ shape and consistency, such as the distinctions between an orange and a baseball.
"When I held an object, I could feel if it was soft or hard, round or square," Sørensen says.

Just in case you missed this on twitter yesterday. Marvel and Star Wars are at it!
Before every contraction, the potential energy trapped in chemical bonds within cardiac muscle cells is released and converted into the mechanical power of the heartbeat. But, like all energy, that which is harnessed to power the heart is never destroyed; it just changes form as it radiates away from the organ as heat and vibrations of surrounding tissue and fluid.
Now, a science team has announced a breakthrough in harvesting the energy released from the movement of the beating heart, the breathing lung and the flexing diaphragm. They’ve developed a superthin device that can be attached to an organ to generate electricity from its movements.
