(TMU) — Creating 3D art with epoxy on surfaces such as tables, counter tops, and other homeware has become an extremely popular way of turning an ordinary piece of furniture into a unique heirloom. You’ll find loads of examples at Pinterest.
The same technology is available to use on floors and Imperial Interiors is one of the companies creating unique 3D epoxy floors with an unbelievably realistic illusion of depth, turning the floor of any room into whatever you desire, such as a coral reef, a beach, a canyon, a waterfall, or a forest floor.
3D epoxy floors are not about plastering a giant picture onto a floor, but rather creating a large-scale art project directly on the floor and then covering it all in epoxy.
Like most beautiful things, creating a 3D floor is an involved process which starts with leveling the floor surface with a layer of self-leveling screed. Once cured, this is followed by the image or design of choice and then treated with a transparent, two-component polymer to add the illusion of depth. It is then left to cure. The final step is to seal the floor with a layer of protective lacquer.

According to the creators of 3D floor technology, most of their creations have been done in malls and other places of business but the same technology is easily scaled down for use in homes and rooms of any size. Imagine having a floor of your favorite place, real or imagined, and creating that relaxing and peaceful atmosphere in your bedroom or bathroom. Perhaps a forest trail through the hallway or a koi pond in the kitchen?
Imperial Interior’s website gives an estimate of from $100 to $500 per square meter of 3D epoxy flooring. Prices vary depending on the condition of the floor base, the type and design of the 3D floor selected as well as the the condition of the floor base, the type and design of the 3D floor that you select, along with the level of difficulty of the work involved. The cost includes materials, the cost of patterns (3D images or cost of paint), base preparation, and installation work.

The company’s website states:
‘’Decorative flooring – it’s not just a picture, a large-scale art object, which fundamentally changes the idea of what might look like flooring. On the one hand – it’s surface, and the other – a whole image, with all shades and textures.’’

“3D technology developers hardly imagined how varied and interesting their ideas are for the future. Today 3D floors are done in shopping malls, large halls, office buildings, apartments and homes.’’
Options you could try to create a 3D floor yourself include using 3D floor wallpaper, so called by various sellers on Etsy. Basically it’s a giant vinyl image that can be stuck to the floor to create a unique 3D illusion. Using innovative printing technology and unbelievably high picture image resolutions that can turn your floor into a sandy beach, a flower, or perhaps a floor of hot lava!
Keanu Reeves Praised As Video of Him Offering Seat to Lady in Subway Resurfaces
Keanu Reeves is an actor who has long been loved by audiences —and not necessarily due to his acting skills, but due to how nice the John Wick star is.
And now, Reeves is once again earning praise as a “true gentleman” after resurfaced video footage shows Reeves giving up his seat on the subway.
The clip was shared by Instagram film fan account Cinemonkeys where it has since earned nearly 45,000 likes.
The video footage dates back to 2011, when it was shared on YouTube by a user of the video-sharing platform.
At the time, Reeves was already a superstar riding on the fame he earned from the Matrix, Speed, and a number of other blockbuster hits.
When Reeves notices a woman carrying a heavy bag, he quickly points to his seat and asks if she would like to sit. The woman accepts and Reeves gets up without hesitating to let her take his seat.
Reeves, ever the model citizen, then stands and holds onto a subway pole while carrying his bag.
The video has since been watched over 27 million times and was even cited in a 2019 Time magazine profile of the actor describing Reeves as the “soul mate” of the internet.
The resurfacing of the clip on Instagram once again impressed users of the platform.
“This human being’s soul honestly shines so bright,” wrote one user.
“OMG I love him in every single way,” another person commented.
“His kindness knows no bounds,” commented someone else.
Keanu is set to reprise his role as Neo in the upcoming fourth Matrix film directed and written by Lana Wachowski, who co-directed the earlier trilogy with her sister Lilly. He will also return to the silver screen in John Wick: Chapter 4, which will be released in 2022.
Drunk Man Rescues Injured Baby Bird By Sending It To Animal Shelter… In An Uber
An injured baby bird received a new lease on life after a young man who was inebriated had the good sense to send the little creature to an animal shelter because he and his friends were too drunk to drive.
In the Summer of 2019, a small lesser goldfinch suddenly appeared by itself at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah. The center’s chairman, Buz Marthaler, was notified by a volunteer who sent him a photo.
“It was a picture of this bird, and it had come by Uber,” Marthaler told FOX13. “It was just crazy.”
As it turns out, the tiny bird – which was only two weeks old – indeed rolled up to the site by its lonesome, the sole passenger in an Uber vehicle called by concerned citizens who found the injured creature.
Among those good Samaritans was Tim Crowley, who had been “day drinking” on that Saturday before he and his buddies witnessed the little bird fall from the sky.
“Impromptu, sitting in some camp chairs, hanging out, having a few drinks when we had a visitor fall out of the sky,” he explained.
Crowley then snapped a photo of the bird and sent it to the WRCNU, which instructed him to immediately bring the bird in. However, the group obviously couldn’t drive since they had been guzzling booze all day.
So Crowley decided he’d hail a cab for the creature.
“At first it was a joke, like, ‘Hey, maybe we should just call Uber!’” he said. “Then we were like, ‘No, really. Why not? We’re paying them.’”
As it turns out, the bird – since named “Petey Uber” by staff at the rescue center – likely would have perished if not for Crowley’s quick thinking.
Marthaler remains impressed by Crowley’s move and shared the news on its Facebook page.
“While we feel we’ve seen it all and can’t be amazed by anything, there is always someone out there to prove us wrong,” the shelter’s post read. “Thank you to the rescuer who helped this little one get the care it needed in a timely manner and thank you for keeping yourself safe and others on the road safe as well.”
Binx the Cat, Who Survived Florida Condo Collapse, Found and Reunited With Family
Amid the tragedy of last month’s collapse of a South Florida condo building, there was a tiny bit of good news when a cat named Binx, who lived on the ninth floor of the Surfside building, was found safe and returned to his family.
“I’m glad that this small miracle could bring some light into the lives of a hurting family today and provide a bright spot for our whole community in the midst of this terrible tragedy,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava in a Friday press conference, reports NPR.
Levine Cava explained that a volunteer who feeds street cats in the area recognized the cat near the building before bringing him to an animal shelter, where it was then identified.
Gina Nicole Vlasek, the co-founder of the The Kitty Campus rescue group, posted on Facebook that a black cat had been found near the rubble of the group before it was brought to the shelter on Thursday night.
“We are so grateful to be able to help in any small way,” Vlasek said.
“All we needed was a ray of hope in this tragedy,” she continued. “Today was one of the most amazing days.. one of the survivors came to see the cat and to determine if it was her families cat and IT WAS!”
The mayor said that animal control workers are continuing to work to recover any pets that may have survived the horrible collapse.
The 12-story Surfside condo collapsed on June 24. At least 79 people have been confirmed dead, with 61 additional residents remaining unaccounted for.
