A new, high-tech carpeting system is making its way into homes around the world, and it’s not a carpet made by the American company Blue Diamond.
Instead, it’s made by a startup called Sawmill, which is building a “spider-web” that uses a computer chip to control tiny cameras to detect objects on a floor and turn it into a carpet.
It’s called SawMill Flooring, and Sawmill has already had some success with the system, using it to decorate homes in Japan and Taiwan.
Sawmill says it’s designed to “help homeowners, homeowners with disabilities, elderly people, and others in their communities” to “preserve their personal space while also helping them stay comfortable.”
Sawmill’s founder, Mark Bowers, told Business Insider that he wanted to use a technology that could do things “that nobody has done before,” like the carpet that can sense if it’s a window, door, or a chair and turn itself into a sofa or bed.
Bowers said Sawmill is still “thriving,” and that the company plans to launch its platform in the next two years.
Bower said SawMill will initially only be used for house maintenance and landscaping, but in the future, it will eventually “work for all kinds of residential areas.”
A robot would handle the “pivoting” of the floor, which Bowers described as like “pulling out a piece of furniture and moving it over and over.”
Bowers and his team hope to get Sawmill onto as many homes as possible, but the platform isn’t just for home maintenance and decoration.
SawMill says its platform will help homeowners, seniors, and people with disabilities “preserved their personal spaces while also staying comfortable.”
Here’s how Sawmill plans to do that: Sawmill Flooring uses “smart robots” to detect if the floor is a door, a window or a couch, and then turn itself in to a sofa, bed, or other item, according to Sawmill.
These robots will then “manage the flooring with a simple touch, turning it into furniture, and delivering the product to the home, all without any mechanical or human intervention.”
SawMill has already tested Sawmill flooring in Singapore and Australia.
SawMills flooring was tested in Singapore in 2015 and 2016.
Sawmills floor is made of wood, which has an added layer of carbon-dioxide that “reflects the light in the room,” according to the Sawmill website.
Sawmilk is a special material that can absorb up to 100,000 times its own weight in light, according a Sawmill press release.
It will help prevent heat from building up, and helps “reduce heat loss by absorbing radiant energy, which helps reduce heating costs,” Sawmill said.
SawMilk’s special properties make it ideal for the SawMill platform.
The Sawmill platform will be able to “turn in to anything from chairs to curtains, to bedding, to even wall hangings, for homes and apartments,” Sawmilks website said.
“The platform is made up of a simple silicon chip that senses light and responds with a vibration to create the effect of a carpeting product.”
The SawMill Platform also features a built-in microphone, so homeowners can hear when they’re moving the platform.
Saw Mill Flooring has been tested in Japan, Singapore, Australia, and the United States, according the company’s website.
This year, SawMill partnered with Ikea and the Japanese government to introduce Sawmill to the country, and they’re also planning to launch Sawmill into China, Vietnam, and South Korea.
Saw mill’s platform will come with an array of products, including “toy bedding” and “carpet for the bedroom,” according Sawmill on its website.
It also offers “custom-made” carpets that are available in a variety of colors.
The company also says that Sawmill will sell its carpet to homeowners, but “no one is allowed to sell the product.”
Here is a trailer for the new Sawmill carpet, which looks more like a pair of skis.
It looks more natural than the Sawmilys original floor.
