Futuristic Floors Will Detect If You Have A Heart Attack [VIDEO/POLL]

Alright, so we live in a world of smart phones, why not make the kitchen floors smart too? Well, get ready because IBM has been granted a patent for a multi-touch smart floor that can detect home intruders and even call 911 if you’ve fallen and can’t get up.Thanks to a database of objects and a blanket of sensors that will track the number, weight, shape, and location of objects in a room. Simple mathematical equations drives IBM’s new patented invention. It basically counts the number of objects in contact with the floor covering,  then compares it to numbers in it’s database.

Residents will be able to turn their futuristic floors on or off to keep track of the number of people at home. The floor could also detect a person “lying prone on the floor” or report a person suffering a heart attack.

All I can say is “Better not being doing anything inappropriate on the floor you might get detected.”
