It nice to see an article about a product that solves a real problem for the handicapped or elderly.

We have enough first world gadgets, this actually could have a positive impact across all world levels.
When I first saw article headline I was imagining a ripley-vs-alien-queen contraption that would allow a chef to prep food during a 6.0 richter earthquake. "Watch as Tremor-correcting Ginsu cuts paper thin onion slices during a massive earthquake!"
