Submission + - IBM Patent: Smart Floors Detect Heart Attacks, Intruders

An anonymous reader writes: An IBM patent issued in March describes multitouch floors that detect who is in the home and what they’re doing – perfect for detecting intruders and falls, notes MSNBC. CEPro.com suggests the technology also could be used to replace cameras and sensor arrays typically required for gesture control, and could detect staggering teens and "unregistered" boyfriends. The floors would have “tremendous implications for home health technology.”
