Smart floor is giant interactive screen


Smart Floor Recognizes Users To Offer Personalized Entertainment

The possibilities of a near future when entire floors or walls inside our home become responsive interfaces are vast. A floor could sense when people enter and leave the room and, when integrated with other smart features, could enable our content to literally follow us throughout the house, eliminating the need for pause buttons completely. The video projection capabilities offer a whole new platform for gaming, enabling kids to kick around a virtual soccer ball without ever having to worry about breaking their mother’s favorite vase. And in a life-saving capacity, the floor could recognize if a person has fallen, alert a caregiver that assistance is needed.
