One Squishy Step at a Time

If carpets, hardwood, and concrete floors are too passe for you, how about one that generates floral patterns underneath every squishy step? The Blooming Step flooring system is a vinyl carpet containing nontransparent gel that appears clear when undisturbed. When you step on it flowers seemingly bloom from the surface tension and just as quickly disappear – creating a visual conversation as people walk across the room and interact with furniture.
