A Wooden Floor that Follows the Curves of the Tree it’s Made of

September 16th 2015

While traditional wood milling forces trees into straight rectangle shapes, novel smart milling techniques allow for industrial-scale manufactured hardwood flooring that follows a tree’s growth.

In the past such floors were the rare product of a few dedicated craftsmen, but Estonian company Bolefloor now brings curved-length flooring to the market at large.


You have to love these floors as they show that as technology matures, it better resonates with biology.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
