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.
