Who knew???…You can clean your house just by walking around!

These shoes (made by designers at Electrolux) have a built-in vacuum cleaner that suck up dust as you walk.

The shoes have two parts:

  • a rechargeable base that contains the vacuum motor
  • an elastic sock which holds the user’s foot in place
  • A laser sensor switches the vacuum on and off automatically to save energy.

    Who knew that I'd be writing about feet for a living?!... Or even that a website devoted solely to feet, shoes, and foot care issues would be successful? But as it turns out, many people have questions and concerns about their feet -- and we do our best to provide the most helpful answers here. Myself and a handful of others who happen to have some rather unique foot issues share our firsthand experiences with everything from ingrown toenails, bunions, calluses and rough feet to trendy shoes and helpful foot modeling tips. When I'm not writing about all things below the ankle, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
