coondoggie writes "Scientists have demonstrated a fiber optic-based "magic carpet" that can detect when someone has fallen and could be used to help predict health problems that lead to other accidents in the future. Scientists at the University of Manchester in the UK last week showed their magic carpet made of plastic optical fibers, that bend when anyone treads on it and relay the activity to a computer which in turn can map, in real-time, their walking patterns."
