it will also detect when an employee is close to becoming chronically ill... saving almost enough money to pay for the floor itself.

It will be annoying that every time when people is on the floor with abnormal heart beat, the floor calls an ambulance. There are plenty of other reasons for people to be on the floor with abnormal heart beat apart from falling due to heart problem.

What if you have sex? cuz you know... that also causes rapid heartbeats? And nothing is more exciting when someone comes bashing through the door when you have someone bent over! ^_^

A lot of the actions described are already being done with various sensors and existing technologies, without any involvement of the floor.

It could work if people were still in the buying market.

Why do they let you patent something if you're nowhere near capable of building it?

Tell you what, I have an idea for a car that gets 500 mpg, and a touchscreen that lets you do anything in the world, and a teleporter and a supersonic jetpack and a giant moon base made out of popcorn, that I all sketched out on the back of a Taco Bell placemat when I was drunk last night. I don't have any plan at all for how I would actually build them, but everyone give me money.
