Hi-tech invention aims to help sufferers from essential tremors and Parkinson’s disease and can reduce shaking by 76%

Drones, self-driving cars, robots, balloons providing internet access – Google is stretching a long way from search. Now the company has added a “smart” spoon to its portfolio of hi-tech products.

Google is testing a new tool that allows people using its search engine to engage in a live video chat with a doctor to discuss potential health problems.

The tech giant confirmed last month that it is trialling a service whereby if a person searches for an illness or symptom a prompt pops up that allows the use to speak to a healthcare professional via its Google Hangouts service, rather than rely on search results.

The company announced Tuesday that it is experimenting with designing nanoparticles that would detect cancer and other diseases before their onset.

Andrew Conrad, head of Google Life Sciences division, said it would be to the body what an oil change is to a car.

"Can you imagine changing your oil when the engine is broken?" said Conrad, who made the announcement at the Wall Street Journal Digital conference.

Magic Leap on Tuesday announced that Google was the lead investor in a US$542 million round of Series B funding for its secret endeavors.

Also participating in the financing round were Qualcomm, Legendary Entertainment, KKR, Vulcan Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Andreessen Horowitz and Obvious Ventures.

Earlier this year a group at Harvard solved one of the most difficult challenges involved in growing artificial human organs. The team used a 3-D printer to make human tissue that includes rudimentary blood vessels. Emboldened by that success, the researchers have started an ambitious project to make fully functioning printed kidneys.

A team has developed an app and small lens add-on that allows blood-cell analysis via a smartphone.The app, called Athelas, won a prize at a coding event held by the prestigious start-up hub Y Combinator.

 The team says it can detect diseases such as malaria and cancers in seconds, through so-called predictive cell counting. But experts warned of the difficulty of reproducing the quality of medical labs results using just a smartphone.
