An automated feeding tool that lets users select the food they want to eat simply by looking at it.

The iCRAFT is short for ‘Eye-Controlled Robotic Arm Feeding Technology' and was designed by a team of electrical and engineering students at the Northeastern University. The tool would allow disabled people or the elderly to feed themselves by utilizing eye-tracking technology.

Users simply have to gaze at the food in front of the them and the robotic arm will then scoop the content from the bowl and feed it to the person. iCRAFT can easily attach a spoon to the end of the gadget in order to work. The device even works when there is more than one bowl in front of the user, as long as the user's eyes are focused on one specific bowl.
