Video: Freaky Floor

A Manchester, England-based tile company posted this quick clip of their trippy front entrance.

The optical illusion floor at Casa Ceramica in Manchester is actually flat, but you’re forgiven if you’re worried about wobbling down an imaginary incline and being sucked into another dimension.

This floor in a British tile company is enough to make you seasick on land.

Pool Fool

Indoor pools are usually built in the basement, for a number of reasons. One of them is well illustrated in this YouTube clip. High winds are jostling a highrise condo so much that the water is sloshing out of the pool and throughout the unit. Good thing someone put down a towel to sop up the water!

Masons beware: SAM (Semi-Automated Mason) the brick-laying robot is out for your job.


Meet metal-muscled SAM, the bricklaying robotic assistant of the future.

SAM, short for Semi-Automated Mason, was developed by Construction Robotics, a small business funded by the National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research program.

SAM works alongside masons to install bricks, making the humans’ jobs less backbreaking. It is designed to increase productivity and reduce heavy-lifting burdens on construction crews. Masons set SAM up and work alongside it, continuing to use their knowledge and skills while letting the robot handle the repetition and physical labor.

Business co-founder Scott Peters hopes this new technology will attract new talent to the industry and ultimately boost the U.S. economy by adding jobs.

NSF provides early stage R&D funding to small businesses such as Construction Robotics to help them move their innovative ideas into the marketplace.

Early century, un-modern

The “good ol’ days” are right now for Ben Sansum, a dapper British man in his late thirties who lives life like it’s 1946.

The BBC wrote in the description of this 2014 video, “His clothes, his house, the music he listens to – all come from an era before he was even born.”

His one guilty concession? A small modern fridge.
