This is something I picked up on my news feed. It’s a new floor prototype that senses a users foot prints and other interactions to make environments interactive. I think this is definitely the direction things are headed. They mentioned assisted living as a possible application and I think it could be very useful. But I also see the continued scary flip side of this technology. Each step you take and the things you interact with in your house (and elsewhere) are recorded and available for multiple levels of analysis. A brave new world indeed.
