Towards Robotic Feeding: Role of Haptics in Fork-Based Food Manipulation - IEEE Journals & Magazine
Two stage neural net, using a general object classifier to locate food on a plate, then a second stage to ID the food to match against a database of force factors for how a robot arm holding a fork should skewer the food to grab it.

Halo Neuroscience announces public availability of Halo Sport
Uses neuropriming, where they stimulate the motor cortex to make it easier for the brain to reconfigure (neuroplasticity) and learn motor control patterns. So they shock your head lightly for 20 minutes before the actual training regime. Enhanced human athletics is here.

DigInfo TV - TEROOS - Shoulder-mounted Telecommunication Avatar
An interesting shoulder surfing concept for a telepresence robot, as a kind of second set of eyes, or as a handy on-call expert. If there's enough bandwidth, this could be usable for disasters, allowing first responders to consult with experts offsite, allowing the experts to "ride-along" and rather conveniently solves the mobility issues with a lot of telepresence robot avatars.
